Welcome to The Queen’s School
Whether you are researching schools for entry into primary, secondary or sixth form, Queen’s offers something unique and exceptional; a challenging academic education in a warm, nurturing environment which inspires and develops girls to achieve their absolute best. The results speak for themselves; we are proud to be a Times Top 100 school, our inspection results are unsurpassed and girls make outstanding academic and developmental progress across the board.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to our school to see the benefits of a Queen's education for yourself.
Queen's blogs give a real flavour of our community; written by our school leaders, pupils and teachers they reflect a network of people who are interested in the world around them and happy to ensure their voices are heard.
The inspection ranked the school as ‘excellent’ (the highest grade) in all areas: “Self confidence, a willingness to take risks and the ability to articulate individual views and respect those of others are evident in pupils of all ages” ISI Inspection Report
The vast majority of our pupils go on to study academic subjects at top performing universities. Every year we enable a handful of girls to go to Oxford or Cambridge University and several to embark upon medical or veterinary degree courses.
Our school’s reputation for producing intelligent, creative, confident and caring young women is based upon the abilities, achievements and behaviours demonstrated by our alumni for decades past and which continues today. Here are just a few examples.
The Queen’s School is the only independent school in the north of England to be officially recognised for the excellence of its work in promoting the study of Mandarin Chinese. UCL Institute of Education Confucius Classrooms are schools across England that have Chinese firmly embedded in their own curriculum and can give advice, support and taster classes to other schools in their region.
