Ofsted conducted an ungraded inspection of Queen Elizabeth High School on the 10th and 11th of January 2023. This ungraded inspection reported that the school continued to be a good school across all inspection areas.

The main findings were

“This is a school where pupils are valued and well cared for. They enjoy coming to school. They are happy and feel safe. Bullying is rare. Pupils are very confident that staff will deal with any concerns raised. Pupils behave well in lessons. They are respectful towards staff and towards each other. They listen carefully to their teachers and try hard to complete their work. Leaders have high expectations for pupils’ achievement. The curriculum has been carefully developed to meet pupils’ needs and interests. Teachers have good subject knowledge. They often provide interesting activities for their pupils. However, there is still work to do to make sure all teachers explain new information clearly and give pupils useful feedback on their work. Staff are ambitious for pupils’ wider development. Pupils value the broad offer of clubs, activities and external visits. Pupils also benefit from a well-structured careers programme that includes a work experience opportunity for every pupil.”

The inspection lasted two days and was carried out by two inspectors, led by Deborah James.
