Applications are open for our Ofsted rated ‘GOOD’ Sixth Form.

Welcome to QEGS

A former private school, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, based in Blackburn with Darwen, is now a 4-19 co-educational free school. This is a state-funded school so, while we no longer charge fees, we retain an independent-school ethos, placing strong emphasis on high academic standards, exemplary behaviour and extra-curricular commitment. This combination, as we know from our 500 years of experience, is a guarantee of success, as our results show year after year.


Build the strongest foundations for your life in education, at QEGS Nursery.
