Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate

Set in more than 220 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate has provided students with a vibrant and supportive school community since 1912.

“To be the best that I can with the gifts that I have."

QE is known locally, nationally and internationally for our academic excellence, with students benefiting from wonderful study, boarding and leisure facilities as part of campus life. Most importantly, QE is a happy and exciting place to learn. We welcome girls and boys from Nursery and support them through our four Excellent rated (ISI) schools - Chapter House (3 months to Year 5), King’s Magna (Year 6 to 9), The College and Faculty (both Year 10 to 13) - to become resilient, confident and independent young adults who are well prepared for their future.

Queen Ethelburga’s has a long standing relationship with the British Forces, welcoming students from Forces Military families for over 100 years. As a preferred school for Forces families in the UK, we currently have over 300 such students boarding with us. We welcome boarders from Year 3 onwards and pride ourselves on our wrap-around specialist support for our Forces students and their families


We have established ourselves amongst the top schools worldwide, demonstrated by our outstanding academic results and impressive list of top university destinations. We also understand the importance of developing the whole student by presenting opportunities to learn beyond the walls of the classroom through our extensive enrichment programmes, designed to recognise and celebrate their individual skills and aspirations. Together, as a learning community, we will continue to set and achieve the highest standards.
