Queen Elizabeth’s School is a 13-18 Church of England mixed comprehensive school with an excellent local reputation for high quality teaching and learning and an innovative and forward looking approach to education. This reputation was reinforced by OFSTED in September 2005 and it continues to grow as we succeed in raising achievement still further; results have risen continuously over the past eight years and we expect to see further improvement over the next few years.
There is a strong commitment to comprehensive education and a focus on creating an environment that supports continual school improvement and the attainment of all students. As part of the drive to continue the school’s development, we commenced operation as a Specialist Sports College in September 2003.
For over five hundred years, Queen Elizabeth's School has provided education and opportunity to young people. Supported by our Minster Foundation, we continue to develop the potential of every member of the School community by encouraging, nurturing and stimulating them and by celebrating their achievements. We do this, sustained by our commitment to a shared set of values based on the Christian faith
We currently have about 1450 students on roll, with a large sixth form of around 400 students. The school is now regularly heavily over-subscribed. Our catchment area is very large and covers a mixture of rural and urban areas. Most of our students come from four main feeder middle schools (Allenbourn in Wimborne, Cranborne, Emmanuel in Verwood and St Michaels in Colehill). Increasingly though, our popularity means that students join us from further afield.
You may choose to send your son or daughter to Queen Elizabeth's regardless of where you live.
Admission to the school is based on the following priority order, after admission of those children living in the catchment area.
- Older brother or sister at Queen Elizabeth's.
- Medical reasons
- Attendance at feeder Middle Schools
- Proximity to the school
The school is arranged into a number of faculties and areas, each managed by a Head of Faculty or Department. These are:
