The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 600 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 +0.35 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, including brand new staging and tiered seating, which really set us apart in the locality and support performance based activities. We are a forward thinking school, always looking for and being very open to new ideas; we feel this is the best way to ensure our consistent development and the further improvement of our student’s attainment.
