About Queenswood School

Queenswood is a progressive boarding and day school for around 480 girls, aged between 11 and 18, where boarders make up more than half of the School. An all round education focuses on equipping the girls with all the life skills required of women in the 21st century. Within a caring and supportive framework, the girls enjoy a dynamic academic curriculum, supported by a diverse and exciting extra-curricular programme.
It is a warm and friendly community where everybody knows each other. Girls thrive within a nurturing house structure tailored to meet the needs of the girls as they progress from the Junior School, through the Middle School, and on into the Sixth Form. Day girls are fully integrated within the houses, are able to enjoy all the facilities and opportunities available to the boarders, but choose to go home at night after a packed school day. There is a flexible approach to boarding to meet the varying needs of individual families; girls may choose to be full boarders or just to remain in School for four or five nights a week.
Queenswood is proud to be an international community with an outward looking approach; overseas girls make up around 20% of the pupils. We welcome girls of all faiths and none, recognise and support an individual’s adherence to her own faith, but expect all girls to embrace the School’s broad spiritual ethos.
The girls are ambitious high achievers, winning places at the top universities both at home and abroad prior to embarking upon a range of exciting careers. Individual talent also flourishes in sport and the creative and performing arts. As important as individual achievement is the development of a sense of responsibility for each other and the world in which they live. Queenswood girls are thoughtful young people with a secure set of values and self-confidence.
The beautiful Queenswood estate provides the perfect educational environment. Being just 25 minutes from central London, it also has the advantage of easy access to the cultural richness of the capital. At the same time, its proximity to major international airports provides ease of travel for both our overseas girls and for those participating in the School’s foreign exchange and visit programmes.
