School Profile

Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, centrally located in Lancashire with an attractive parkside setting, is one of the leading co-educational independent day schools in the north west, offering a first-class academic and extra-curricular education and excellent pastoral care to boys and girls aged 3 to 18, all on one site.  

Boys and girls in the Senior School at Queen Elizabeth’s are part of a tradition of excellence that stretches back more than 500 years.  The school continues to blend that tradition with the best elements of a modern, co-educational approach to learning.

With the benefit of fine facilities and small class sizes, supported by a strong pastoral care system, pupils tackle a broad and challenging curriculum.  They also have a wealth of opportunities for extra-curricular activities, which enable them to develop their individual interests and enthusiasms.

At Queen Elizabeth’s, education is based on clear, Christian values and the programme of study includes religious, civic, personal and social education.  For all our boys and girls, their time in the Senior School is not only focused on preparation for university (to which nearly all go), but also on preparing for life.

Recreational activities are also a key feature.  While many Queen Elizabeth’s pupils have gone on to achieve sporting success at regional, national and international level, we also set great score by the contribution our pupils make to drama, music and other cultural pursuits.  The House system ensures that all our boys and girls can make a positive contribution to the life of the school.
