Queen Elizabeth's Hospital (QEH) aims to produce young adults who are well-educated, not just well-qualified. Founded in 1590 and occupying a prominent city centre site, QEH is well known within a competitive market for high academic achievement, rich co-curricular activities and high quality pastoral care based on strong values of personal integrity and community service.
With more pupils than ever before, the school continues to go from strength to strength. There are over 670 pupils in the senior school, of which 230 are in the Sixth Form. This includes a growing number of girls following the school’s move to post 16 co-education in 2017. The Junior School, occupies the same site and has around 110 boys.
QEH is an ambitious school and continues to invest in exciting new facilities to enhance the educational offering. Recent developments include a new £3.5 million Science and Art building, new Sixth Form recreation, study and cafeteria facilities, along with redesigned and expanded facilities for music and IT. The school owns extensive playing fields at Failand about 4 miles from the school and recently completed a comprehensive £3 million redevelopment of facilities.
