Mission statement

The mission of Queen Elizabeth's School is to produce young men who are confident, able and responsible

Mission statement

All who work at the School contribute to this objective by:

  • encouraging independence of thought and tailoring the learning experience to individual needs, thereby securing ever higher levels of achievement
  • focusing the boys’ attention on their own development and aspirations, both at the School and beyond
  • emphasising the importance of traditional values, working in partnership with parents to inculcate an attitude of tolerance, possession of good manners and pride in self-presentation
  • promoting boys’ general wellbeing and their enjoyment of learning, rewarding effort and celebrating success
  • giving boys progressive responsibilities and encouraging their participation in worthwhile activities beyond the classroom
  • developing boys’ awareness that they achieve genuine fulfilment and greater benefit by seeking to make a contribution to society rather than pursuing only personal gain
  • providing an inspiring learning environment, harnessing the benefits of technology and ensuring that the maximum time is devoted to core professional activities
