A North Yorkshire School is celebrating this week after it was awarded a top grading of ‘Excellent’. 

  • Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate was awarded the Collegiate the top grading of ‘Excellent’ after an inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate 
  • QE's Early Years Foundation Stage provision was also assessed as ‘Outstanding’
  • Academic and the personal development of the students was praised

Celebrations are underway at Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate (QE) this week after the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) awarded the Collegiate the top grading of ‘Excellent’ across all schools and areas, praising the pupils’ outstanding academic achievements and personal development.
 
QE's Early Years Foundation Stage provision in Chapter House, was also assessed as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.
 
The reports follow a three-day inspection in February this year, with inspectors observing every aspect of school life through attended lessons, assemblies and extra-curricular activities. They held discussions with pupils, parents and staff across the school, in addition to examining samples of pupils’ work.

QE supports students through four schools: Chapter House (3 months to Year 5), King’s Magna (Year 6 to 9), The College and The Faculty (both Year 10 to 13).

The academic achievements, as well as the students personal development was praised. 

Steven Jandrell, Principal said:

“We are absolutely delighted that the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has found Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate to be ‘Excellent’ across all schools, praising our pupils’ outstanding academic achievements and personal development.

“These are the Inspectorate’s highest possible ratings and are a ringing endorsement of the quality of teaching delivered, extra-curricular opportunities offered, and pastoral care provided to students here at QE. The findings reflect our collective determination to always provide our students with the best possible opportunities to develop successfully and happily.

“I would like to thank our staff, pupils and parents for their continued support in making the QE community the special place it is.”
