QKS Testimonials

|   A Welcome from the Headteacher

I would like to extend a warm welcome to The Queen Katherine School.

Everything we do at QKS is centred on the idea that we are all
'Proud to Belong', this is not just a motto but a way of life.

I am often asked what the best thing about our school is, quite simply, it is the people. Our dedicated teachers and support staff ensure that students are happy, confident and make a positive contribution to our school community and beyond. Children thrive when they are happy. In our vibrant, aspirational and caring community, each child is recognised as an individual and challenged to reach their full potential.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and that you will also take the time to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about the incredible opportunities at QKS.

|   Our Vision & Values

Enjoy Achieve Include Respect

'Proud to Belong' is part of everything we do and is an expectation for everyone in the QKS community.

We have a culture of celebration in school and as much time and effort goes into ensuring our students are happy, polite and resilient as goes into their learning in each of their subjects.

We want all our students to leave as well-rounded individuals who have the motivation and confidence to find their own way in the world.

| Duke of Edinburgh Champion School

A record-breaking 200 students are completing DofE Awards at our school right now. QKS has a long history of success running the world’s leading achievement award and since 2017, this opportunity has been open to every student in Year 9 as part of our ‘whole child’ curriculum.

Achievement and success are not limited to academic qualifications; we want our students to take on responsibility; try new things; challenge themselves; dig deep and show resilience to stick at things; work as a team; tackle problems with confidence and give something back to the community.

Congratulations to all of our A level and Professional and Technical Award students who have just received their results – we’re so proud of you all. Results were phenomenal with a third of students attaining A*-A!

Our students are going on to do lots of amazing things - David Seaton is off to Leicester to study Medicine, Lily Neal is reading English and Education at York, Ben Fleetwood is reading Mathematics at Warwick, Jack Boles has secured a place at the Royal Northern College of Music, Harrison Morgan is travelling around India, Thomas Johnson has joined the RAF, Hannah Dodgson is going on to become a trainee accountant and Joe Richardson is continuing his pilot training. What bright futures!
