The Queen's Senior School is located on the historic city walls overlooking Chester Racecourse while the Lower School is a short distance away on Liverpool Road.
Our outdoor sports facilities enable a wide range of sports, including lacrosse, hockey and athletics. Netball and tennis is played on our recently resurfaced courts.
The development of our sport and fitness facilities at the Senior School helps us now deliver an impressive range of activities daily for our girls and we have exciting plans for a major investment in the sporting provision at Queen’s pending.
We have submitted a planning application to build an astroturf sports pitch on our playing field at the Senior School site. This impressive new facility will provide huge benefits for both our school and the local community and will encompass a full-size hockey pitch, a full-size lacrosse pitch, a 200m running track and will also be available for a range of other outdoor sports and training activities, including netball and football.
Our Sixth Form Centre can be found next to the main school. When students are not studying, they are able to relax in the modern Sixth Form block, which contains two well-equipped common rooms, kitchen facilities, lockers, study rooms and classrooms with a library on the ground floor.
Both the Year 12 and 13 common rooms have LED screens, sofas, coffee tables and dining areas. At lunchtime, girls can either eat in the main school, take out a meal from the dining room or pop into the city centre where dozens of cafés and coffee shops are less than a five minute walk away.
The Lower School boasts an on-site swimming pool, running track long jump pit, tennis and netball courts. There are also outdoor classrooms, a forest area, plus playground and climbing equipment, science, cookery and music rooms as well as a school kiln and an IT suite. Outdoor learning is a key part of the curriculum for our Infants who enjoy a superb outdoor environment including our mud kitchen and stage for performances.
Importantly, everything is well used and maintained, ensuring the girls have access to some exceptional facilities.
