Let me welcome you to ‘Queens British Grammar School’, an international school, which opened in September 2016.
My aim is to make this school the best and the most successful school in this region. It will be a relatively small school, dedicated to delivering an exceptional learning experience for children, in a pleasant, supportive, yet disciplined environment that is focused on making each child’s time at the school a happy one.
Although a happy school life is one aspect of motivating children to succeed, we will also encourage them to strive for targets and goals that they may have once thought were beyond them, and in doing so, we will enable pupils to develop to the peak of their own true potential.
Our choice of a school name is no accident; the name ‘QUEENS’ represents our approach to teaching and the support and encouragement we will provide to pupils.
Q - Quality in the provision of facilities, materials, and activities.
U - Understanding of the needs of pupils, as a group and as an individual.
E - Exceptional teachers with a proven background of success.
E - Enjoyable - Making education and learning an enjoyable experience for pupils.
Time spent at school should be a positive and pleasant time for children.
N - Nurturing - Creating a nurturing environment; looking at the development of the ‘whole’ child, academically, emotionally and physically.
S - Striving – To help pupils to recognise that success and true potential is rarely achieved without effort and striving for it.
In our first few years, the school will not provide ‘A’ level classes, but we will do so in the future. Our initial focus is to enable pupils to achieve good results at IGCSE, which will provide a stable foundation for further education, with the long term goal of gaining entry to a British university, or other reputable centre of higher education.
If you are new to the area, or you are unhappy with the education that your child is receiving at their present school, please contact our administration and they will arrange for you to come and visit us at our school in the centre of Estepona. I will be happy to show around the facilities and explain how we will be providing the best education for your child.
