Sixth Form

Sixth Form Open Evening 23rd November 2017


















We remain extremely proud of our Post-16 students and the important role that they play as ambassadors to our lower school and within the wider community. Queen Elizabeth’s School provides “outstanding” pastoral support for our sixth formers, enabling them to make informed choices as they consider the next stage in their lives. Little wonder then, that on average 70% of our Year 13’s go on to take up a place at university.


Choosing to study at Queen Elizabeth’s is choosing to join a vibrant and engaging working environment, and one that is focused on you, the learner. Our aim is not only to provide the best quality teaching and learning possible, but also to provide all of our students with the opportunity to develop workplace and other similar skills that will contribute to their future economic well-being. Typically, our most successful student is one who is aware of their strengths, knows how to work on their weaknesses and takes advantage of the many opportunities available at Post-16 level.

We are an established Post-16 provider with one of the widest range of courses in the area, we remain confident that we can offer something for everyone, and are happy to provide advice and guidance to any student considering their Post-16 options.

“Student’s behaviour both in lessons and around the school is exemplary. They are very pleasant and courteous and clearly enjoy attending their sixth form, fully participating in the many opportunities available to enhance their spiritual development and making a real contribution to the inclusive and warm atmosphere.”

“A rich programme of activities helps to develop students’ cultural understanding...many mentor younger students.”

“Students appreciate the one-to-one support provided by teachers and the fact that they provide thorough and speedy feedback on their work.”

“Students’ preparation for the world of work is unusually good. They receive effective advice to support them in making decisions about their future lives.”

“The extent to which students adopt healthy lifestyles is outstanding, largely as a result of the school’s specialist sports status. Students enthusiastically involve themselves in the many physical activities available both within and outside school time.”
