Academically, the school places particular emphasis on the core subjects English, mathematics and science. In addition to these, expert teaching is delivered for humanities, MFL, ICT, sports and the arts.  


Through active participation in drama and musical performance pieces and competitions, pupils boost their language, literature and poetry proficiency while developing their social interaction skills.


Extracurricular pursuits encourage further interaction and the exploration and discovery of new talents. The list of activities includes everything from athletics, coding, cookery and chess to fencing, gardening, choir and martial arts. [2]


QEGS Junior also offers an outdoor learning programme, through which pupils’ connection with peers and nature is nurtured and their leadership skills and confidence are expanded.
