Queen Elizabeth’s School is a learning community based on sustained academic excellence delivering a broad and balanced education that produces confident, well rounded and effective members of our community.
At Queen Elizabeth’s School the spirit of the QE Family is primarily recognised in the learning partnerships that exist between staff and students and between students themselves. We believe that when students are happy they will thrive, when they are challenged they will succeed and when they are supported they will achieve. Above all else, Queen Elizabeth’s School focuses on the individual to ensure that between the ages of 13 and 18 all students mature as learners and individuals. We all want our students to be successful and independent learners but we also recognise that they need support to achieve their full potential.
At QE School we have a focus on student learning outcomes in the broadest sense and particularly seek to offer learning opportunities that will encourage resilience and adaptability that will enable our students to meet the demands of a complex and dynamic society.
Mrs Katie Boyes
The key to our success is the quality of the people who work at the school. We have 101 teachers and 74 support staff. Although teacher recruitment has been a major national issue, we have been very fortunate in being able to recruit very high quality staff to the school and we are fully staffed with subject specialists. We place a very strong focus on Continuing Professional Development and have a strong track record of colleagues achieving promotion internally and externally.
We work very hard to create a positive, open environment that means that people want to work here. All new staff are allocated a mentor and are able to benefit from an extensive induction programme.
The school is committed to training new teachers and has a long history of successful involvement in ITT, working principally with Exeter University and the College of St Mark and St John, as well as training colleagues on the Graduate Teacher Programme.
