Welcome to Queen Elizabeth’s School or QE, as it is often affectionately known.

At QE we care passionately about each student as a unique individual and do our utmost to ensure their wellbeing and happiness, as ultimately this breeds their success.

We are a successful school at the heart of our community. We understand the importance of excellent exam results and believe that education empowers by delivering secure knowledge, problem solving skills, deep understanding and the ability to think creatively.

We also believe that education is a holistic enterprise and therefore have a vibrant range of enriching activities, from the most fabulous theatre productions, art and music to sporting excellence and an extensive outdoor education programme.

Queen Elizabeth’s is a school with a rich and proud history stretching back over four hundred and sixty years. We are a large school with around fourteen hundred students, nearly two hundred of whom are in the Sixth Form. Despite our size, we are known for our friendly and approachable atmosphere. We have two separate sites, or campuses. The Barnfield campus, with its beautiful grounds and views right across the hills to Dartmoor, houses Years 7 and 8 away from the rest of the school and allows the younger students to thrive. The Western Road site houses Years 9, 10 and 11 and includes College House, which is our Sixth Form centre.
