University entrance support

Our teaching staff and careers department work closely with students to ensure they make good choices which will benefit their long-term career ambitions.

For those girls wanting to pursue highly competitive courses, we offer specialist support. If possible, students are matched with an alumna mentor who will be currently studying a course – or attending a university college – that interest them. A programme of dedicated activities supports all students interested in studying at Oxford and Cambridge and several visits to colleges are organised. Our medics, dentists and vets all receive additional support, including mock interviews from trained academics who are hugely experienced in helping girls with successful applications. Art students wishing to apply to highly competitive London colleges also find a wealth of experience and expertise at their fingertips.

The support I’ve had has made the difference. I’m not sure I would be where I am if I hadn’t taken their advice.

Queen’s is in the fortunate position of having an extremely strong network of former pupils which enables us to draw on a wealth of talent and experience. Former students and staff of Queen’s are happy to give their time and visit the school to inspire pupils. Their stories are diverse and fascinating – from consultants, award-winning artists and engineers to bankers, wildlife photographers and business leaders. What they have in common is their belief that Queen’s made the difference.

Choosing the right place to study and the right course is hugely important and it is where our personal approach to learning and our nurturing ethos really pay dividends. The advice girls receive uses the latest profiling and research methods and is also tailored to individuals based on real first-hand knowledge of their career aspirations, talents and strengths
