Queen Elizabeth's High School

Queen Elizabeth's High School

Established in 1589 as a boys’ grammar school, Queen Elizabeth’s High School (QEHS) underwent a merger with the local girls’ school in 1983, leading to its current co-educational setup in Lincolnshire. With an enrollment of nearly 1,200 pupils, the school is organized into six houses that actively participate in interschool events spanning sports, art, and music.

QEHS provides a counseling service and ensures students gain valuable work experience opportunities throughout their tenure. The school boasts an extensive extracurricular program designed to enrich students' non-academic development. Notably, the school offers exciting international trips to destinations like Tanzania, Cambodia, and Costa Rica, aiming to broaden students' understanding of diverse cultures and customs.

Queen Elizabeth's High School
Great institution for 11+ coaching:

My son, Akhil had his 11+ coaching in Progress Academy and cleared all the four tests (Kent, Bexley, CSSE and Redbridge) that he attended. The dedication and individual care provided by Progress Academy to each student is the key reason for this achievement.
