    Welcome to Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School, Ashbourne Academy

    Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School is a highly successful school, with an aspirational ethos which leads to excellent levels of achievement. Staff, students and governors are committed to working together to build a positive learning environment, ensuring continuing success for all students. Our core values include hard work, personal courtesy and a smart appearance. We firmly believe that the aim of always doing one's best is the key to sustained success.

    There are three standard points of entry into QEGS: Year 7, Year 10 and Year 12. We also welcome students to QEGS in any year group at various stages throughout the academic year.
