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

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

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.

During the time the school has been opened it has gone under extensive changes and has dramatically increased in size and with this, one new building was opened in 2000, the Forster building, which is home to the sixth form. In 2008 the Deans building was added, with an expansion proposed in 2014.[1] This is home to the English Department on the upper floor, and the Music and performance area on the ground floor. This extension also provided the school with a much needed second dining room.
