Queen Elizabeth II High School


Queen Elizabeth II High School

Queen Elizabeth II High School is a co-educational comprehensive school in Peel, Isle of Man. It is commonly referred to as simply "QE2" and teaches the years 7-11 as well as a sixth form for years 12-13.

The school was opened on July 5 1979, by Queen Elizabeth II, during her visit to the island to celebrate the millennium of Tynwald and since then has grown to a student population of around 850 and a staff population of around 50.

The current Headmistress of the school is Ms Sue Moore, married to local radio newscaster Howard Caine.

The roof of the main hall contains a significant dip about a quarter of the way along the ridge. Some think that this appears to be a structural problem, but it was actually purposefully done to give the roof a likeness to the bow of boat.

GCSE Manx is offered from the age of 12. One of the feeder schools is Bunscoill Ghaelgagh, a Manx language primary school in St John's.
