Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital (also known as QEH) is an independent school for boys in Clifton, Bristol, England founded in 1586. Stephen Holliday has served as Headmaster since 2000, having succeeded Dr Richard Gliddon. The Queen is the School’s patron, although QEH is named after its original patron Queen Elizabeth I.
Known traditionally as “The City School”, Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital was founded by the will of affluent merchant John Carr in 1586, gaining its first Royal Charter in 1590. It is now Bristol’s only boys’ school.
The school began as a boarding school, accepting ‘day boys’ for the first time in the early 1920s. Boarders continued to wear the traditional blue coat uniform on a daily basis until the 1980s. After that, it was only worn on special occasions. Following a steady decline in numbers QEH stopped accepting new boarders in 2004, and boarding closed completely in July 2008.
QEH aims to provide a first-class education. We seek to help all pupils develop their academic potential to the full and to provide opportunities for them to explore and extend their other abilities across a range of activities.
QEH Senior School has an entrance examination in January for students entering at Year 7 and Year 9 levels, boys take papers in Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning. These papers are used to select those eligible for John Carr academic scholarships.
