Alongside the work on academic achievement and progress, Queen Elizabeth’s offers a wide range of enrichment opportunities to enable students to nurture existing talents or try something new.

Our Christian vision demands that we ‘give our all, to all’ and enrichment is a key part of the work that we do here.

Outside of the academy timetable we are always busy! Whether in sport with our dynamic sporting teams, music with our beautiful choir or drama with our talented actors, there is always an offer to suit all tastes. These opportunities are designed to appeal to all our students and support their personal and character development.

Coronavirus has impacted on our regular offer, but nonetheless we still have a thriving co-curricular offer as outlined below:
