Beyond the classroom

Whether a boy wishes to focus on sport, to develop his creative skills or to devote his spare time to a rewarding hobby, there is ample scope at QE.

Beyond the classroom

At Queen Elizabeth’s School our mission to produce confident, able and responsible young men extends well beyond the confines of lessons and of purely academic pursuits. An extensive system of pastoral support exists to ensure that boys are able to thrive during their time at QE, while all QE pupils are encouraged to take full advantage of our very extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities.

House tutors are at the core of the pastoral system at QE, and the house system also plays an important role in encouraging pupil involvement in the life of the School, promoting competition and local charity fund-raising.

Whether a boy wishes to focus on sport, to develop his creative skills or to devote his spare time to a rewarding hobby, there is ample scope at QE. Activities include, for example, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Combined Cadet Force, chess club and regular drama and music productions. There are also frequent and exciting trips, including not only a full fixture list in sports as diverse as cricket, Eton Fives and water polo, but also visits further afield, such as pre-season rugby tours to France, overseas Music tours and Geography tours, modern language exchanges and Business Education European study visits.
