he school provides bursaries at 11+ onwards. In addition to its own resources, support comes from the John James Foundation (a Bristol-based charity), the QEH Elizabethan Society and friends of the school. Bursaries are means-tested and up to 100% assistance towards fees may be available.
Applications for assistance must be submitted in advance of the January entrance exams. If you would like your son to be considered for a bursary you should complete the Application for Financial Assistance Form which is available from the Admissions Office. Every year, there are more applications than there are funds available, and performance in the entrance exams is part of the assessment process.
Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital is no ordinary school. These pages show a little of those special qualities which make QEH unique, but you need to visit and meet our students to understand fully why QEH is so different from other schools in Bristol and beyond.
With only 650 Senior and 100 Junior day pupils, we know every student. Individuals truly matter here. Whether they are talking to boys in Year 7 or girls in our Sixth Form, visitors comment on the friendliness and confidence of our pupils, while they in turn speak about how well they get on with each other and the staff.
We are academically selective but not socially exclusive. There’s a good mix of people at QEH. Examination results at QEH are outstanding. It is a pleasure to work in such a unique place and a privilege to play a part in shaping the lives of the young people of QEH.
I hope you will come to visit us and I look forward to meeting you.
