An academic route for the ambitious at Queen Ethelburga’s College (QE)

QE College is known globally for its consistently high-ranking league table positions, placing 2nd nationally for A Level Results in the Sunday Times Parent Power 2023, with 98.8% A*-B grades achieved.

One of two senior schools for Years 10-13 at QE, the College offers an academic pathway tailored towards aspirational careers and competitive next steps where students get hands-on experience in their passions, compete nationally in competitions, undergo research projects, and become independent learners who can communicate their ideas with confidence.

Undertaking QE’s academic pathway supports students to develop key skills and knowledge within specific fields of interest. Students choose from an extensive range of academic pursuits within the Stretch and Challenge programme including psychology, law, debate, medicine and veterinary, linguistics, esports, journalism, young leaders, economics, tycoon in schools and the student investor challenge.

Academic pathway students receive an assigned UCAS Mentor along with access to a team of expert career advisors who assist them with university applications, interview preparation and technique, entrance exams, finding work experience, writing personal statements and choosing the right course. Those applying for competitive university places receive a high level of extra support within the Early Applicant Programme and can attend guest speaker lectures on topics such as applying to and studying at Oxbridge.

QE recognises that the university market can be highly competitive and so encourage students to set themselves apart from their peers by participating in an extra-curricular offering of over 100 activities. Many students also undertake an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) where they research, write and present on a topic of interest to them.

QE offers a broad itinerary of workshops and lectures on life skills from building effective study habits and coping with exam stress to cooking and managing finances at university. There are also seminars and workshops delivered by alumni, professionals, entrepreneurs and changemakers.

One of the most effective initiatives is The QE Study Toolkit which prepares students for lifelong learning through teaching the most effective methods for study and revision.


QE College is a diverse and engaging school for ambitious academics. For more information on QE’s Academic Pathway, visit www.qe.org or email admissions@qe.org for a private tour.
