Welcome from Mr Shevill

Welcome to QEGS Junior School and the start of your son’s exciting journey to manhood. At QEGS JS we understand young boys and we are well equipped to meet their developmental needs at each stage of their education.

The boys in our community are happy, confident, fun loving, energetic QEGLETS. They relish a challenge, they are passionate about their sport, music and drama, and they thrive on competition; always trying to be the very best version of themselves.

At QEGS JS each staff member has responsibility to develop and inspire the boys to enable them to reach their full academic potential. It is our goal to teach them in a way in which they are fully engaged and excited by their education, on a daily basis.

The School is a busy place - there is not a week in the year without something innovative or stimulating or important taking place. The QEGS curriculum has been designed by us to meet the unique learning styles and interests of boys and to create a curriculum which engages, enthuses and challenges each boy.

QEGS JS is a caring community where boys, staff and parents work closely together. The size of the school allows us to provide a wide range of options for boys, but also ensures that each boy feels a sense of belonging. This can only be understood and appreciated by visiting the school, talking with us and seeing the boys in action.
