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.

Students at Mam Tor

Upper Sixth A level Geologists took two days out recently.  Led by Dr Aggett, the first day was a study of geological sites in Lincolnshire.  Students saw red and white chalk at Red Hill, at Asterby  and studied glacial deposits at  Welton le Wold.

On the second day, the students travelled to Castleton in Derbyshire where they studied the geology around Mam Tor (pictured).
