What distinguishes QE is its diverse teaching approach, which fuses various styles and techniques, acknowledging that every student has a unique learning style. By making learning enjoyable and inspiring students to think bigger, QE not only maximises classroom success but also prepares students to do well beyond it.

Flexible curriculum, dynamic teaching, excellent facilities, and professional staff — these are the key factors that can empower students to carve a life of success.

At Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate, you’ll find exactly that. QE has proven to be an educational establishment worthy of the QEGUK Quality Assurance Validation — an award bestowed on schools committed to the highest performance standards in international student provision. It is the first school in the UK to have achieved this.

This excellence goes hand in hand with a focus on student well-being at QE. Creating a culture of respect, equity, and collective responsibility is a top priority for teachers and staff here. The school provides comprehensive support, including initiatives for mental health, stress management, and emotion regulation. A dedicated pastoral team is available 24/7 in a specialised welfare area, and a Peer Mentor Scheme offers relatable support for younger students.

Beyond academics, QE students can choose from over 100 extracurricular activities that include Game Design, Home Economics, Motorsports, Woodland Sessions, and more traditional pursuits like Art, Dance, Design Technology, and Drama. Those who want to add more substance to their university applications and further education can join academically focused clubs in Medicine and Veterinary, Journalism, Advanced Mathematics, Critical Thinking, Law, Enterprise, History, Politics, Psychology, and Philosophy.

Over in the fields and in their community, QE students test what they're made of and who they can be. Many QE students compete nationally across a broad spectrum of sports. And when they’re not winning medals, they can be found volunteering and contributing to environmental initiatives. Wherever they go, they display their responsibility, empathy, collaboration and leadership skills — you cannot help but be impressed by a QE student.
