Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th June at 7pm in the Main Hall, we will be staging the second half of Dickens’ epic tale, “Great Expectations”. Tickets are now available from the Reception desk at school, priced at £6 (full price) and £4 (all concessions).


The curriculum offered to pupils from 11 to 16 is one characterised by great depth and breadth. At age 11, pupils study a range of 17 subjects, with some of the more practical subjects taught in smaller groups to allow the greatest possible individual attention.

At the end of Year 9 in Senior School, pupils choose a suite of GCSE subjects. English and Mathematics are compulsory, as are one modern foreign language and a combination of sciences.

  • English, Mathematics and Sciences
  • French or Spanish or German
  • Three option subjects from: a second Modern Foreign Language, Art, Business Studies, Classical Civilisation, Computer Science, DT (Product Design), Ethics & Philosophy, Geography, History, Latin, Music, or Physical Education
  • Complementary Studies, Tutor Periods, PE and Games

As a free school, Queen Elizabeth’s is not constrained by the requirements of the National Curriculum.
