Queen Elizabeth's Academy

At Queen Elizabeth’s Academy we are ambitious for our students. Our vision for students is that we want them to be able to read and understand scholarly articles, broadsheet newspapers and be able to interact in debates in the subjects that we teach by the time they leave the academy. This is why our key stage 3 is the full three years.

We want students to have the basic the knowledge they need in all areas before any narrowing of the curriculum through option choices at key stage 4 and 5. The curriculum also reflects our Christian ethos and vision statement.
