Visiting and Open Days at Queen Margaret's

Visiting Queen Margaret's is the best way to experience everything our independent school in York has to offer. You can either book a visit to Queen Margaret’s by filling out the contact form, or you can call us for more information. Open Days at our beautiful home in Escrick Park mean you can see the School for yourself. Queen Margaret's lies six miles south of York, just off the A19. It is easily accessible via the A1 from the North and the M62, and via the M1 from other directions.

Our Admissions Team would love to get to know you better at one of our Open Days. Should you wish, you can also take the opportunity to meet our Head, Sue Baillie, who can chat with you about your specific requirements whilst sharing an insight into everything a QM education has to offer.

Our next Open Day is on:

Saturday 13th January - All Years

Saturday 24th February - All Years

You can also book a Taster Day.

Girls have the chance to spend the day with our current students, following their timetable and experiencing a full day of lessons - meeting girls and staff, spending time in the boarding house, and sampling the food! If you would like to sample boarding, you are very welcome to stay overnight.

Students will meet their 'Guardian Angel' - one of our current students who will look after them during their time with us, prior to Morning Registration which is at 08:15. Girls spending the day with us are free to be collected at 16:50 when lessons finish or, if overnighting, after breakfast at 08:15 the following day.

It wasn't until we drove up the impressive driveway and I walked through the door that I started to understand what was meant by the QM Family. I felt immediately welcomed and any worries I had up until that point were put at ease.
