Most Popular Destinations and Courses

Where our girls go to university is a fairly good indication, not just of the teaching at the school, but of the overall attainment of the school.

Quite often the offer of a place at a top university comes down to how a girl performs at interview. They look for articulate, confident students who are interested in the world around them and can think critically and strategically.

Through our Sixth Form Queen's School Baccalaureate qualification and a range of associated enrichment activities, we encourage and organise opportunities for in depth research into a subject, public speaking, debating and presenting for all students in Sixth Form.

We also offer bespoke career advice and opportunities from the outset to inspire, inform and support every student in their career aspirations.

As a consequence, consistently large numbers of students attain places at their first choice of university and their first choice of course.
