About Queenswood School

Mission statement

“To offer an excellent education, through a broad curriculum, and a wide range of co-curricular opportunities. To promote the happiness and self-esteem of pupils, to foster a love of learning, enquiry and debate and to promote international, cultural and political understanding.”


Queenswood school approaches learning in a personalised way in which girls can receive tailored support depending on their needs. 1 to 1 teacher-pupil time is available for high achievers who want to reach their full potential and students who could benefit from extra academic support. There are almost 28 subjects available for girls to choose between at A Level.

Girls at Queenswood perform well in exams - in 2021, 82% of A Level grades were A* - B. Pupils continue on to top UK universities such as Durham and Edinburgh as well as universities in the USA.

Activities & sports

The range of sports at Queenswood is extensive and all students are encouraged to participate. Just some of the options include tennis, hockey, netball, fencing, golf and horse riding. Drama and dance are also popular activities, with around eight shows taking place each year.

There are plenty of opportunities for students interested in music too as the school offers a variety of choirs, orchestras and ensemble groups which regularly take part in European music tours.

International student community

Queenswood prides itself on fostering a supportive international community. Around 20% of students are international boarders. Additional English language support is available to international students. If required, students can receive individual language tuition as well as collaborative sessions with other pupils.

Boarding life

50% of all Queenswood students make up their busy boarding community. Depending on their age, girls will either share a bedroom or have their own single study bedroom.

Queenswood aims to build a home from home for their students, with shared communal spaces for pupils to spend time together. Alongside regularly planned activities such as crazy golf and shopping, pupils will have the opportunity to take part in regular weekend trips to London, Oxford and Brighton.
