At the heart of everything we do is happily support all pupils to achieve on their own terms as they contemplate life shaping decisions for the years ahead.  We believe there is no substitute for readily available current advice and sound structured guidance.  We offer bespoke one to one assistance to help each pupil make the right decision for the next stage of their life.

Find out about our House experience

At QEGS, all pupils belong to a House.  We think this helps everyone to quickly belong, explore and reach their full potential.   New pupils are welcomed as a member of a House and enjoy many socials, adventures and competitions with others in their House ‘family’.  Life here and being part of a House is one side of the student experience here at QEGS and goes hand in hand with academic and extra-curricular life.

All of our departments are open and are looking forward to your visit.  Stop by each and take part in the fun activities they have in store for you.
