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

Music WorkshopDr Tim Shephard and ex-QEGS student Sarah Leffler came to QEGS to lead a music workshop with the GCSE and A level students.  In addition to providing information about university life and the breadth of music-related degrees available, students developed their knowledge of musicology through various activities.  Students had the opportunity to study medieval music notation (quite different to what we see now) and as a whole group, performed an improvisatory counterpoint in the style of J.S. Bach.  The session supported both the GCSE and A level syllabuses nicely but also provided students with opportunity to learn beyond this, developing their analysis and reasoning skills.  A great couple of hours!
