Welcome to our school website which I hope provides you with both essential information and a flavour of the life of a student at QEGS.

I am proud and privileged to be the headteacher of such a successful and supportive educational community with a long-standing and fantastic heritage.

The QEGS Vision: we care, therefore we question, we explore, we give and as a result, we succeed.

At QEGS, we value education in the broadest sense; with sport, the arts, enterprise, performance, employability skills, competition, cultural school visits and many other amazing opportunities taking equal standing with academic success. At QEGS, our goal is to prepare students for life beyond school, for QEGS students to be employable, to be life-long learners and to be happy and successful in life. We believe that for students to achieve their best academically their education should be enriching and well balanced to ensure they are mentally and physically ready for the academic challenges they will face. Enabling our students to be the best they can possibly be is our duty and privilege.

If you are interested in your child joining QEGS, in any year group and at any stage through the academic year, please contact our Admissions and Transition Team to arrange a visit, a tour, or even a taster day.

As part of the QEGSMAT, we have a well-established community of stakeholders who are committed to working together to build a positive learning environment, ensuring continuing success for all our students. More information on our Trust can be found here.
