Both the Lower and Senior Schools are blessed with beautiful historic buildings which inspire our pupils and constantly remind us all of those who came before us and found their success through a Queen’s School education.
Over the years the elegant historic buildings have been added to and developed to keep pace with the demands of a modern curriculum.
We now have wifi across both school premises plus iPads and some of the best IT facilities in the independent sector for pupils and parents to access.
The Lower School also has a swimming pool, athletics facilities, tennis courts, a library, science lab, ceramics studio with a kiln, drama studio, outdoor learning facilities such as an outdoor classroom, forest school area and new play equipment from both the Infant and Junior playgrounds.
Despite its relatively small size for a secondary school, The Senior School has exceptionally well-resourced academic departments – art teachers use the full range of media to inspire and engage pupils, the library supports learning with regularly refreshed material for Year 7 upwards and the science departments are well resourced so as to ignite interest and develop a genuine passion for the subjects.
Opportunities to perform are plentiful and the arts subjects are supported by an imposing main hall and stage with flexible lighting and a well-stocked music room and drama studio.
The renovated Sport and Fitness Centre and Fitness Studio with modern changing facilities means more girls than ever are taking up sport and fitness activities. In addition the school has an astroturf pitch, tennis courts and athletics equipment and has use of the Lower School swimming pool.
Most girls take part in extracurricular activities at lunchtime but there is always time to relax with friends at lunch and break in the dining hall, form rooms, the quad and the top garden.
Sixth Formers have access to the Sixth Form House which contains two common rooms with plasma TVs and kitchen facilities and study area. In addition to the sport and fitness facilities, they also have access to a fitness suite with gym equipment and floor apparatus.
