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."

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 understand the importance of providing a secure and supportive home from home for students whose parents may need to travel or live abroad for work. Boarding facilities at Queen Ethelburga’s support easy and direct communication with student’s families, with direct phone lines in each room. In addition, we do not have specific “exeat” weekends and parents are able to let their children have any weekends away from school to enable their children to visit relatives or friends.


We strive to create the right learning and living environment in which every one of our students can thrive.
