    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. For further information about your child attending QEGS, please contact Mrs L Barrie (Transition Leader) to arrange a visit, a tour, even a taster day.

    Partial Opening Arrangements (11/12/2017)

    Dec 2017 - Partial Opening Arrangements (11/12/2017)

    Many thanks for your understanding of our partial opening arrangements today.

    We were faced with a significant staff shortage issue early this morning (staff travel from Staffs, Cheshire, Notts and north Derbyshire). We knew we had sufficient staffing for most, but not all lessons and so had to act accordingly. Rather than close the whole school we chose to request Yr11 (who had just sat 3 weeks of Mock exams) and Yr12-13 (who have Mock exams in January) to stay at home and use the time for self-supported study/catch up.

    Celebrating and Explaining our Outcomes

    Nov 2017 - Celebrating and Explaining our Outcomes

    We are rightly very proud of the achievements of our students this summer, and thought this would be a good time to explain a little bit more about those outcomes, and also remind you and us about some of our other successes, the ones that don’t always make the headlines in the local and national press.

    Restart a Heart Day

    Oct 2017 - Restart a Heart Day

    On Monday 16th October over 200 students from Year 9, 10 and 12 were trained in CPR for Restart a Heart Day. The British Heart Foundation have supplied us with a full kit of training equipment and a fabulous team of First Responders from East Midlands Ambulance Service came to school for the day to show our students how to use it. They had a great day at QEGS and said that our students were a pleasure to teach.

    We’re now planning to build on our links with EMAS and use our new kit to train even more students over the next few months.
