The city is less than two hours by train to London and one hour 15 minutes direct to Manchester Airport; Leeds Bradford airport is 45 minutes by taxi.

The quality of education QM provides for each girl is exceptional and year on year excellent examination results are achieved at both A Level and GCSE. With a tailored timetables our teachers maximise every girl's academic potential, resulting in our leavers securing fantastic success at university.

QM’s pastoral care is exemplary, with every girl having a dedicated personal tutor to support her learning and life at QM.
