Queen Elizabeth High School (QEHS) is a flourishing community high school and Performing Arts College with 1422 students, of whom 498 are in the sixth form. Northumberland LEA currently operates a three tier system, so QEHS has students aged between 13 and 18.

The school is part of the Tynedale Virtual College, a collaboration between the four high schools in the Tyne Valley and Northumberland College. The TVC seeks to provide vocational learning across the area.

In March 2007 an Ofsted inspection judged the school to be "outstanding". [cite web
