Principal’s welcome

As summer approaches and we continue to speed through 2019, the work being undertaken at TQEA continues to support students in achieving the very best educational outcomes. This cannot be achieved without the fantastic support from our dedicated staff and wonderful parents/carers. Thank you to you all, you cannot underestimate the power of teamwork!


This half-term has seen many highs with the publication of our best ever GCSE examination results, which put us well above national averages in the government’s key performance measures and amongst the top 10 schools in Warwickshire for the second year in a row.


We have recently been designated as ‘Local Leaders of Education’ (LLE) and our reputation continues to grow both, within the locality and further afield. Look out for more updates of our involvement with the LLE programme in the coming months.


In addition to our academic success, we have sent visitors to our link school in China, run workshops in character education, worked in partnership with @3MUK as part of National Science Week 2019, celebrated World Book Day and hosted our own, hugely successful, first annual careers fair. Take a look at the photos and updates on our Twitter page @TQEA_Principal and our Facebook page at


Due to the academic success achieved, our very positive Ofsted report and the breadth and depth of both our curriculum and extra-curricular offer, we are growing in size. In September 2019, the Local Authority have asked us to take an additional 30 students to support the growing need within the local area. To support this increase in student numbers, we will be expanding our facilities over the summer and opening a new teaching block in September. This is a great opportunity for our school and community and recognises what has been achieved over the past four years at TQEA.


We are an innovative and forward-thinking school in Atherstone, Warwickshire; providing high quality education for the young people in the surrounding area and further afield.


At The Queen Elizabeth Academy we are committed to:

‘Securing the highest academic standards through the provision of:

outstanding learning and teaching and student welfare


If you would like to find out more about our academy, our excellent learning and teaching and our plans for the future, please feel free to contact us and we would be delighted to talk to you individually.
