Welcome to our website which we hope will give you a flavour of life at Queen’s. What we offer here is quite simple; the best academic education delivered in a nurturing and inspirational environment with a strong focus on personal development and pastoral care. We believe – because countless parents and visitors tell us - that this unique mix is what makes Queen’s girls stand out from the crowd.
