"QEHS is a great place to study"

  • Excellent results
  • Specialist A Level teachers
  • Current A Level class sizes are all under 20 students with an average of 12

In 2021 Queen Elizabeth’s High School students achieved the best A Level results in the local area:

  • 68% of students attained at least one A or A* grade
  • 39% of students achieved grades that were all either grade A or A*
  • 8% of students achieved a full complement of straight A* grades
  • 88% of students achieved grades that were all of C or above
  • 93% of students achieved grades that averaged C or above
  • 81% of students completing the EPQ attained either an A or A* grade

The staff and Governors of QEHS would like to congratulate all of our students who have worked so incredibly hard over the past two years in order to gain such excellent grades in their A Levels this year.

Mr Eastham, Headteacher, said:

This has been an unprecedented and challenging year for everyone. It is, therefore, with immense pride that I am able to congratulate our school community on meeting the challenge head-on. A true sense of determination, together with adaptability and resilience has ensured these results are testament to the incredible efforts of the students and staff at QEHS. Yet again we have excelled! These A Level grades were achieved under strenuous testing conditions and, typically, students approached their assessments with the same rigour and diligence as they would have applied to public examinations and staff were equally thorough in their marking, moderation and grading. 

Once again this summer, we have students going on to study medicine, veterinary science and a wide-range of other subjects and disciplines at prestigious universities including both the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford. Securing prized places at university and on apprenticeships with such excellent grades is to be celebrated and represents just reward for the endeavor shown by our Year 13 students during their A Level studies. Well done all!

By working in partnership, students, staff and parents have ensured a supportive approach has been adopted at all times in order to maximise post-18 achievements and successes. Overcoming the pressures and stresses associated with A Level studies is never straight forward at the best of times, so for everyone to pull together in the way the QEHS community has done this year should fill each and every one of us with a real sense of pride. My personal thanks, therefore, are extended to all colleagues and parents for the support you have given to our students.

At QEHS we pride ourselves in providing all students with a holistic educational experience to ensure they leave us as well-rounded, highly capable and confident young people. As our Year 13 students begin the next steps of their educational journeys, everyone here at school wishes them the very best for their futures, much on-going success and happiness.

Once again, very many congratulations!

Mr R M Eastham
