outstanding learning and teaching; and student welfare


Principal’s Welcome


Thank you for taking the time to look at our school and visit our website. Whether you are already linked to our school, considering what we could offer you or are interested in how you could support TQEA, you are most welcome. 


I am Principal at The Queen Elizabeth Academy and am very proud to lead a school with such fantastic students and staff. Our reputation locally is good and growing fast with an oversubscribed year seven and many joining in other year groups, following the school's best ever results last year. 


Opportunities to develop at this school are ever present. I am a firm believer in growing talent and consequently we reap the rewards of being innovative and enthusiastic. Because we never stand still and are always looking to do our best for our students, staff development is a priority. We invest heavily in professional development internally and externally to ensure we are constantly improving our skills and abilities at all levels for the benefit of our community as a whole.


Our students are fantastic and really buy into our ‘We Can and We Will' ethos, where effort and engagement really matters. Our job is to drive student aspirations, motivate them to be the best they can be and to help them leave us with the best possible future ahead.


The staff here at TQEA share this vision, so we have excellent relationships throughout the school community and we provide a range of additional opportunities to help extend and further develop our students.


The Queen Elizabeth Academy benefits from outstanding, brand new state of the art facilities as a result of being part of the Government 'Priority School's Building Programme'. 


As a student or teacher, there is no better place to be.
