Queen Ethelburga’s College, compared with other schools, is somewhere special, friendly and pleasingly different. The campus is exceptional, with a range and quality of facilities few can equal. Examination results mean the Junior School has a creditable history of being a Sunday Times’ top Preparatory School. Whilst Queen Ethelburga’s College is the UK’s top number 1 independent co-education School in the North for academic. The College aims to give every pupil an Education for Life, with academic achievement as its core but with social and life skills as its heart.
Queen Ethelburga’s welcomes pupils aged 11 to 21 who share the philosophy ‘To Be The Best That I Can With The Gifts That I Have’ and who seek a better quality of life at school as day pupils or residents on campus. The junior school, Chapter House, welcomes pupils aged 2-11.
In the nine decades since its foundation in 1912, Queen Ethelburga’s has become one of Britain’s best known and finest centres of education, with an enviable reputation nationally and internationally for care, friendliness and excellence.
As you would expect, class sizes are small and teachers are able to give every pupil a high degree of individual attention. In addition, Group Tutors maintain a close personal interest in every pupil’s progress.
The objective in the early years at school is to identify each pupil’s strengths, weaknesses and particular lines of interest in order to develop, in conjunction with pupil and parents, the most appropriate selection of GCSE subjects when that time arrives.
Class work goes well beyond the requirements of the national curriculum, to provide a breadth of stimulation and enjoyment which helps every pupil to discover the joy and value of learning, the more to reap its benefit in later years.
