Values and vision
Queen's Gate School has high expectations and a commitment to ensuring that each girl achieves academic success, whatever her ability. It aims to create a secure, happy yet stimulating environment in which each pupil can realise her potential and develop a love of learning both in and out of the classroom. The development of self-discipline is promoted in an atmosphere where freedom of thought and ideas can flourish.
Great emphasis is placed on courtesy and concern for others. Girls are encouraged to take part in charitable work in their local community and further afield, enabling them to become responsible citizens.
“Queen’s Gate is successful in achieving its aim to offer an education for life in a challenging environment where sound values and individuality are nurtured within a supportive environment. The happy, friendly atmosphere is palpable throughout the school. Pupils of all ages and abilities, including those with SEND or EAL, make good progress and achieve well.”
