The School’s home is an historic 75 acre country estate; a safe, enclosed environment with outstanding facilities. We are just minutes from the cultural and historic riches of York, one of the UK’s best connected cities - London is less than two hours on the train, whilst the city of Leeds is a taxi ride away - which makes us a perfect choice for families seeking an authentic, British boarding experience for their daughter.
Academic Results for International Students
What makes QM stand out is the personal level of support offered to every overseas student. On arrival, students are assessed for any additional learning needs, including an additional EAL (English as an Additional Language) assessment for all international students. Timetables also feature one-on-one meetings every week with a Personal Tutor, who provides support with every facet of living and learning at QM.
As a result, we see excellent examination results achieved, both at A Level and GCSE. With small class sizes and tailored timetables, our teachers maximise every girl's academic potential, resulting in our leavers securing fantastic success at university. University destinations include Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, LSE, UCL, Durham, Bristol, Stern Business School (USA) and The Royal Drawing School (London) on a diverse range of courses such as Engineering, Art Foundation, Mathematics, History, Music Management, Medicine, Law and Business Management.
Beyond the classroom, our boarding is arranged by year group, which helps the girls to bond and develop lifelong friendships with peers within their age group. Accommodation and facilities are age appropriate, meaning that Year 7 (QM’s Year I) settle into QM life in a homely ‘farmhouse’ environment, whereas Year 13 (QM’s UVI) have a real taste of independent living in cottages with their friends.
