It’s the way WE VALUE SMILES as much as success.

To all the boys who have ever entered our doors to commence a successful life journey, QEGS is something of an academic legend. The badge, the camaraderie, the sense of pride in the tie that lasts a lifetime and binds everyone together, the sense of endeavour that drives every achievement, all emanate from the values we live and breathe every day.

An ethos we all share and live by.

Our shared ethos is to ensure that each boy achieves his full potential, whether his strengths lie in the academic, music, drama, sports or any other arena. Along the way, our aim is to ensure that he becomes a young man to be proud of.

Our unique curriculum is designed to evoke a true joy for learning and bring out the best in every student. This, coupled with a focus on robust pastoral care, ensures that we provide a nurturing, character-building environment, where every boy can achieve to the very best of their abilities and go on to flourish in an ever-changing world.

A launchpad for success.

At QEGS, staff and boys develop strong relationships from the word go, through a mentoring programme which boys respect and enjoy. With all of this in place, our aim is to ensure that your son will look back on his days here as the launchpad for success which will fuel his passion for discovery and enable him to build lifelong friendships and memories.

Our Strategic Vision
