At Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, we aim to nurture and inspire pupils to benefit from a healthy active lifestyle. Through a wide range of individual and team activities both in lessons and in our extra-curricular programme, students can flourish under the careful guidance of our expert teachers.
We foster co-operation, competition and participation for all in the dedicated pursuit of excellence. As a school we regularly achieve success in district, county and national competitions. In the past ten years over twenty students have competed internationally in a range of sports including netball, rugby, futsal, cricket, orienteering, triathlon and fell running.
All students in school follow a core P.E. curriculum, with examination level being offered at GCSE and A Level (OCR exam board).
The school offers a wide range of physical activities beyond timetabled classes. At lunchtime and after school, numerous staff and senior students lead extra-curricular sport. Students attend clubs for fun and personal improvement as well as working towards school representation and elite opportunities.
Clubs abound with enthusiasm and commitment from all involved. A typical week will see a wide range of sporting fixtures and clubs for all age groups. Our fixture list and extra-curricular timetable are available online.
We offer students a range of opportunities to develop many of the essential skills they will need to succeed in their future careers. These include improving communication and organisation through to qualifying as coaches and officials.
Pupils are encouraged to organise and run sporting activities including hosting the Y7 county cross country tournament and a variety of other competitions.
Listening to visiting speakers and trips to sporting events also inspire pupils to see that there are a variety of employment opportunities in different roles in sport.
