Additional Information

Queen Ethelburga's has two senior schools:

Queen Ethelburga's College offers a traditional curriculum including GCSEs and A levels, with students taking the EBacc subjects alongside other optional GCSE subjects followed by A levels supported by an extensive super curricular programme.

The Faculty of Queen Ethelburga's offers a wider curriculum of GCSEs, A levels and BTECs, allowing for a more individual approach to building a student's curriculum from academic, creative and vocational options. The standard GCSEs in English, mathematics and sciences are followed alongside a wide range of options at Key Stage 4. The Faculty also offers high level performance sport courses which can be followed alongside a full academic curriculum in rugby, football, cricket, hockey, netball, basketball, swimming and athletics. These are provided by full time, high level coaches with individual strength and conditioning courses devised and monitored by staff from Leeds Beckett university.

The QE motto is 'to be the best that I can with the gifts that I have' and this leads to an emphasis on the development of the individual child, supported by an extensive extra curricular activity programme open to all students and extensive pastoral provision.
