QE Best A-level performance in Devon

Queen Elizabeth's School in Crediton is celebrating the best A-level performance of any school, in both the private and state sector, in the whole of Devon!

Principal Rupert Poole said "We are absolutely delighted that both our A level progress and Academic progress scores are the highest in Devon, and by a considerable margin! Our students have done exceptionally well to get these results and it is a real credit to them – they have worked so hard to get them, and ultimately this will support them to go on and achieve their goals at university or in their chosen careers. There are lots of positive figures in the league tables published today and the results show real academic excellence throughout our Sixth Form. Queen Elizabeth’s Sixth Form has consistently been judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted and these results totally support that judgement."

Entry Requirements

In order to progress on to A-level courses, students need five GCSE passes at C or above, however some subjects do specify their own entry grades, so please check the "What can I do there?" page and download the Course Booklet for details of each course's entry requirements.

Students already at QE

If you would like to come into the Sixth Form, you should first discuss your potential for further studies with your subject teachers and Mentor. what grades are you likely to achieve in your GCSEs? What qualifications do you need to get you into the job/course that you want to do later? If you are not sure what you want to do later, how can you best keep your options open? You should seek advice as soon as possible in Year 11, so that you have time to fully explore possible courses and careers. Applications to QE’s Sixth Form need to be made on the Application Form on this page, which can be downloaded and filled in electronically and emailed back, or printed off and filled in by hand.

Every year a number of students, from local schools and from abroad, transfer to QE for Sixth Form studies and enjoy a happy and successful two years with us. We do our best to make ‘new’ students extremely welcome and find that they tend to settle in very quickly.
