Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate are holding an Open Day for Year 10 students looking to join their Senior School.

  • Queen Ethelburga's Senior School Open Day will be on Saturday 18th January 2020.
  • Prospective students and parents can explore the grounds, experience the facilities and speak to staff and students.
  • Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate is the No.1 Performing Independent Secondary School in the North of England.

The Open Day, which runs from 10:30am to 3pm, aims to give prospective students the opportunity to experience all that the Queen Ethelburga's Senior School has to offer.

Visitors are able to meet prospective teachers, as well as take a tour of the Queen Ethelburga's grounds in Thorpe Underwood, lead by their students.

Extra curricular at Queen Ethelburgas
Queen Ethelburgas have a wide variety of extra curricular activities on offer, including rugby and hockey.

The QE Senior School differs from various other schools in that it starts in Year 10 as opposed to Year 7.

Joining the school at an older age sees students approach learning in a different way, according to 14 year-old QE student Lesasha:

"At Queen Ethelburga's you can start in Year 10 and get a fresh start, and start on the same ground as everyone else.

"We change uniform which helps us get into a different headspace as we're not with the younger students anymore, helping us to focus on our GCSE's."

"I knew that if I was to go to another school that they wouldn't provide the same amount of options.

"I would 100% recommend the school because the teachers here are really supportive, the people are so welcoming and the facilities you'd be provided with are insane!"
