The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 662 pupils on roll. Following our recent Ofsted inspection in May 2017, we were shown to be “Good with Outstanding features”, a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and students. Our summer examination results were fantastic. Our performance was well above National Averages in key performance criteria and our Progress 8 score of +0.24 was quite stunning. In November 2016, as part of the Priority School Building Programme, we moved into brand new premises that have given us access to fantastic new facilities, which really set us apart in the locality. 

We are a forward-thinking school, always looking for areas to develop and improve as well as being very open to new ideas; we feel this is best way to ensure consistent development and attainment of our students.
