Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School is an 11-18 selective, co-educational school of 1061, students with 262 in the Sixth Form. The school has just expanded to six forms of entry in Year 7 with a published admission number of 180 students. Other year groups have 5 forms of entry, around 150 students in Years 8-11. On average, 75% of the Year 11 cohort chooses to stay on into the Sixth Form to enjoy a varied and successful programme. The school is very popular and always oversubscribed. The majority of the school’s intake travels from Faversham and the surrounding villages, with a number travelling from Whitstable. The school converted to Academy status in 2011.

Queen Elizabeth’s was established in 1576 by a Royal Charter approved by Queen Elizabeth I. The original school from that era still stands next to our contemporary buildings. The present incarnation of the school was built in 1967, following the merger of the former boys’ and girls’ grammar schools in the town. We celebrated 50 years on the current site as a co-educational school in 2017.
