It’s the rich array of experiences, activities and societies that makes QEGS such a bustling, dynamic and exciting place to be. Over 50 clubs and societies are held during the school week, encouraging involvement, firing passions and igniting new interests. Alongside QED, the many dedicated lunchtime clubs, societies and musical collaborations add breadth and diversity to the #MadeInQEGS experience.
Our Junior Section enjoys a wonderfully wide-ranging programme of extracurricular activities at lunchtime and after school, from drama and science to gardening and fencing.
While in our Senior Section, each club or society is run under the guidance of a member of staff, but with much of the responsibility and freedom of running each meeting and event, given to the students.
We’re honoured to be an official Duke of Edinburgh Award Centre.
Each year, the Duke of Edinburgh Award at QEGS continues to go from strength to strength and, in recognition of the school having one of the highest completion rates in the area, we are now officially recognised as an official DofE Centre.
The award, which challenges participants to further themselves through practical, cultural and adventurous activity has led to many boys gaining their Bronze Award and a significant proportion achieving Silver and Gold.
