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


On the 22nd of November, the Y8 STEM club went to RAF Waddington for the final of the Project X challenge. Students had been working with members of the RAF to design and make an aircraft that must safely fly down a zip wire and drop 2 packages (eggs) at different points down the wire. It must also land safely. The students also had to present to a team of judges, Dragon's Den style. They were competing against 9 other schools from the county. The students worked really hard and although they didn't win overall, they did win the best Dragon's Den presentation.
