*Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate is a new partner and delivery of NCUK qualifications is subject to completing NCUK’s accreditation process.

Queen Ethelburga’s (QE) has provided a vibrant and supportive school community since 1912. Set in more than 220 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, the Collegiate welcomes children from 3 months for day students, and year 3 for boarding students. With students from over 60 different nationalities, QE celebrates diversity and encourages students to mix and learn about each other’s cultures. QE will support more students with the NCUK International Foundation Year.

The Times Independent Schools Guide ranked QE College as the No.1 independent secondary school in the North of England for exam performance. In 2023, the Collegiate achieved 80% A*/A at A Level, and 76% D*/D grades in BTECs.

Students at QE also achieve success in a wide range of sporting, cultural and outdoor activities as part of the extensive enrichment programme, which is focused on helping students gain the necessary skills in leadership, teamwork and decision-making.

QE benefits from outstanding campus facilities including a dedicated Sports Village, home to a 25-metre swimming pool, triple court sports hall, fitness suite and free weights centre as well as specialist studios for martial arts, dance, gymnastics, table tennis and fencing. Outside, a four-lane synthetic cushioned running track, tennis courts, basketball areas, an eight-metre climbing wall and over 30 acres of both grass and artificial 3G pitches.

Student wellbeing is at the heart of the QE community. In addition to their extensive pastoral care, QE has student buddies and peer leaders. Trained peer mentors offer one-to-one mentoring, and QE’s dedicated team of International Liaison Officers provide a specialist support role for students.

It is a privilege to be able to extend a warm welcome to QE, known locally, nationally, and internationally for our outstanding pastoral care, high-quality boarding provision, and exceptional academic outcomes; all supported by our fantastic facilities, extensive enrichment, and super-curricular programmes. Most importantly, QE is a happy and fulfilling place where we look forward to welcoming students to study the NCUK International Foundation Year. Students at QE are supported to be the best that they can with the gifts that they have.
