Information about the school – Queen’s School

Queens’ School is a larger than average-sized secondary school which became an academy in July 2011. Most students are White British. The proportion of students from minority ethnic heritages is above average. Those whose first language is not English is below average. A few students are of Traveller heritage. The proportions of students with disabilities and those with special educational needs, and the proportion with a statement of special educational needs, are well below average. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is very small in relation to schools nationally.

The predecessor school met the government’s current floor standards, which set minimum expectations for the standards students reach by the end of Year 11. The school was awarded specialist status in sports and science. A sports academy for gifted and talented students in the sixth form is established. The school’s awards include Sportsmark, Artsmark, Healthy Schools and International School.
