Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Students

Students are expected to be organised, well behaved and have a positive attitude to study to ensure that they fully benefit from the opportunities offered here at QEGS.

Code of Conduct

The student code of conduct can be found in their form rooms. Any student who breaks the code of conduct rules will be disciplined in line with our Behaviour Policy.

Form Tutor

Tutors are responsible for the progress and behaviour of their students, any outstanding individual problems are referred to the Heads of Year, Deputy Headteachers or Headteacher as appropriate. Students in their first year have experienced Year 7 tutors who specialise in the school integration process. After settling into life here in school, forms are then reorganised for the transition into Year 8, and a tutor is assigned to support the students until at least the end of Year 11.

Study

We have a broad and balanced curriculum and plenty of extracurricular activities to keep students occupied. In PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) lessons the students learn about topics covering ‘Health & Well-being’, ‘Relationships & Sex Education’ and ‘Living in the wider world’.  

Wellbeing & Mental Health

We help our students, in many ways, to access information and advice regarding emotional wellbeing, resilience, and promoting good mental health. As well as our pastoral system of form tutors and heads of year, we have:

  • dedicated wellbeing-related PSHE (personal, social and health education) lessons;
  • links with Young Minds and the Charlie Waller Trust;
  • regular Camerados ‘Public Living Rooms’;
  • mental health and wellbeing noticeboards;
  • a student wellbeing committee;
  • trained mental health first aiders amongst the staff;
  • a LGBTQ+ group;
  • Peer Listeners;
  • Peer Mentors;
  • access to counselling services (for more information email Mrs Lynda Divers – Deputy Headteacher and Designated Safeguard Lead)

If students need mental wellbeing support they can also visit Kooth for more information.

There is an ever-growing online wealth of information regarding young people’s mental health and wellbeing. A good starting point is to visit The Lincolnshire Health Services Pathway.

Please contact your child’s form tutor, head of year, or any member of the senior leadership team for further support.
