At QE, we are proud of our school history and value the traditions that have served us so well in the past. Students and parents are in awe of our impressive state of the art facilities set within the idyllic 250-acre Thorpe Underwood estate on entering the school campus.
The Collegiate is uniquely made up of four smaller schools, designed to maintain a nurturing family atmosphere while still offering some individuality for each school section.
Each has its Head and staff team, allowing our staff to know their students thoroughly and form outstanding teacher relationships based on mutual respect and unwavering support. In this way, the
staff can successfully guide and nurture students through each stage of their formative years.
