Award-winning Teaching

Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College outranked all other English schools in its category for AS Graphic Design and AS Use of Maths to win two prestigious ‘Good Schools Guide Awards’ for 2011. These coveted A Level awards recognise teaching excellence: an accolade that further demonstrates the College's commitment to outstanding results and support for our A Level students.

Be Inspired

Queen Alexandra was the first College in the country to be awarded the 'Inspirational Teacher Award' from Oxford University. In 2011, History teacher Steven Driver was nominated by an ex-Queen Alexandra student for his exemplary support and high quality teaching which helped her secure a place at Oxford University. This new award recognises the crucial role teachers play in encouraging talented students. And it’s not just our teachers who are bringing home the trophies, we make sure that our students have access to some amazing opportunities to showcase their talent and gain recognition and accreditation for their efforts.

For example, our students have won countless local and national competitions in subjects such as Art, Graphic Design, Photography, Sport and many more.
