About QM

QM is led by Head, Sue Baillie. Sue brings a wealth of experience from her 27 year teaching career having worked as Pastoral Director, Second Deputy Head and Head of History and Politics, giving her extensive senior leadership experience.

Queen Margaret's is an all-girls school welcoming students aged 11-18. Awarded 'Excellent' across all categories in our recent Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) we provide a flexible structure which includes places for day girls, flexi boarders and full boarders with hours to suit modern, busy families. We work with you to provide a safe, structured and stimulating environment where your daughter will thrive. QM is ideally positioned to educate, inspire and nurture the girls of today, who will be the leaders of tomorrow.

In our School, every girl has a voice. Curricula are tailored and timetables are personalised for each student and all are given opportunities to develop and excel. Our girls can captain the Debating team, choose to study Physics or be part of a Netball team. Our girls enjoy not only equal opportunity but every opportunity. All activities are open to them; they participate, influence and lead - there are no gender stereotypes here.

Girls join QM predominantly from across the UK, but also from many other corners of the world – currently 16 different countries. The School offers international students a traditional British boarding experience and our horizontal boarding system encourages girls to build lifelong friendships with their peers. The careful balance of different cultures and nationalities of the girls at QM is something of which both our British and our international families are extremely proud.

We cherish and nurture the relationships we have with our girls and parents, and we always look to ensure that communication is smooth and key information is readily available, in doing so we have created the QM Family Handbook. This provides an in depth look at life at QM.
