Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Welcome to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School and thank you for visiting our website.  I hope that your visit enables you to capture the essence of our vibrant and dynamic school community. As well as being extremely proud of the school’s long history, I am equally impressed with the range of activities our students get involved in. It is a privilege to lead this remarkable school; students who are friendly, ambitious and creative; staff who are dedicated, caring and talented. Our standards are high; we expect every member of the community to aspire to be the best they can be.

Mrs H. Payne, Head Teacher

Right of appeal

The parents of any applicant who is not offered a place have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel. QEGS adopts the LEA’s independent appeals service.  For September 2018 entry into Year 7 parents can appeal online. Please contact school for further information about the appeals process.
