Academic departments

Queen Elizabeth’s School delivers an ambitious curriculum that is progressive, where appropriate, yet adheres closely to traditional standards of academic rigour.

Academic departments

Our reputation for academic success is based heavily on detailed, regular assessment and monitoring of each boy’s learning. Parents also form an integral part of the success equation: our home-school partnerships set out exactly how parents can help their son achieve to the full extent of his ability, with the School playing its part by providing parents with plenty of detailed feedback on each boy’s progress. Lunchtime clinics run by every department provide help both to boys who on the one hand are experiencing difficulties in a particular area, or on the other wish to explore classroom topics in more depth.

Across the curriculum, there are many further enrichment opportunities intended to stimulate and inspire boys, including visiting speakers, local and national competitions and visits such as geography field trips and visits to conferences. The School has invested in the latest technologies to ensure that pupils have full access both to the wide range of resources on the School’s own network and to the world wide web.
