Principal’s Welcome


Jenny, Head Teacher I am delighted to welcome you to the Elizabeth College website.

At Elizabeth College we aim to provide an educational experience that is unique, friendly, supportive and caring and which turns out happy and successful young people. As Principal I want to ensure that we are delivering an all-round education that develops the abilities and enthusiasms of each and every student.

Elizabeth College offers provision from the age of two to 18. Founded in 1563 and one of the original HMC Schools, it is a school full of local character with a fascinating history and a great tradition of scholarship.

Whilst we are always delighted by the GCSE and A level results our students achieve; our main aim is to ensure that as individuals they get the best results that they possibly can, and develop a genuine love of learning.

We deliver a strong, broad education allowing our students to thrive not only in the classroom but wherever they are drawn to, be it the sports field, the science labs, on the stage or in the studio. We nurture each individual focusing on their unique talents and encourage them to grow, to understand themselves and others and to work hard to become confident, effective communicators ready to take the next steps on their own personal adventures.
