As an Academy Queen Elizabeth's School is its own admissions authority and each year sets the admissions criteria and number following consultation.

Prospective parents seeking admission after the commencement of Year 9 or to tour the school at any other time should telephone the Headteacher's Personal Assistant.

  • Looked After Children
  • Older brother or sister at QE
  • Children living in the school's catchment area
  • Attendance at feeder Middle Schools
  • Children of staff newly appointed in order to fill a demonstrable skills shortage
  • Proximity to the school
