Upper School Welcome


THE UPPER SCHOOL


Elizabeth College Upper School will become co-educational from September 2021. The School offers a broad and innovative curriculum which has been designed to be tailored to individual needs. Beyond the classroom, there are extensive opportunities for all pupils to become involved in sport, music, drama, the CCF, the Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme, trips and visits and a host of other activities. Our Sixth Form curriculum is delivered in partnership with our neighbouring school, The Ladies’ College. This gives students a very wide choice of A level courses and provides an excellent preparation for university and their future careers.
