We are pleased to announce details for our Open Evening on Monday 27 September. Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School will operate the evening in line with the established Risk Assessment framework provided by the Borough for schools hosting events. We are holding a series of events both in person on the day and during the following week, as well as virtually the following week, to ensure as many families as possible can get a chance to have both a tour and to listen to key information provided by the Headteacher, Mrs Walker, the Head Girl and other students, to gain their perspective on life at Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School. 

Please also take time to look at other information on our website: our history; useful school information as well as our Sixth Form Prospectus and two video films, where you can hear staff talking about their subject and students talking about their experience of learning each subject in the Sixth Form. 

We look forward to meeting you and your family soon and sharing with you everything that ensures an outstanding education for all of our students.
