Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital (also known as QEH) is an independent school for boys in Clifton, Bristol. It was named after its original patron, Queen Elizabeth I. The school’s present patron is Queen Elizabeth II and its site occupies a designated Grade II listed building. [1]


The academic provision in the Junior School is strong, primarily focusing on the development of pupils’ skills in the areas of mathematics, English, science, humanities and ICT.


Beyond the classroom, the school offers the QE Award, which is the Junior Version of DofE. This outdoor education programme is designed to provide boys with the opportunity to develop leadership skills through a range of activities, including map reading and bush craft. Simultaneous to undertaking the programme, the boys grow in appreciation of nature and wildlife.


For pupils who gravitate towards the arts, QEH offers a number of opportunities in the areas of music and drama, whether they be art and dance clubs or performances & productions delivered in the school’s very own theatre. [2]


QEH’s ethos is centred on providing boys with a value-based environment which is holistic and nurturing by nature. In this way, the school aims to encourage them to make the most out of their time there, take risks and face adversity with a positive attitude.
