Welcome to Queen Elizabeth's!

We are very excited to welcome you here in September 2018. Here you will find all the information you need about joining QE next year. As well as this I hope the combination of transition events and your QE ambassador guides will make it a smooth transition.

This webpage for transition has been written with our Year 8 Ambassadors, based on their experiences of what they needed to know when they made the transition to Queen Elizabeth’s. Although it is a guide for students it would also be useful for parents and carers to read this information too so you both know what to expect from the transition process.

Below is a timeline of transition, so you can see what is coming next. You will also find some useful documents telling you more about different aspects of QE. Over the course of the next few months we will be adding further documents so do keep checking back.
