Welcoming international girls to Queen Margaret's

How to Apply

We accept applications for international students into all year groups, from a minimum of one term up to seven years. Places are offered on a rolling basis up to twelve months in advance, and we recommend early application to avoid disappointment.

Taster Visit

Under more usual circumstances, we would be happy to welcome you for a tour and a meeting with the Head, Mrs Sue Baillie, to help give you a taste of what life is like here at QM. Fortunately, we are still able to conduct video tours online, and can schedule a meeting with Mrs Baillie, either before or after submitting your Registration Form, at a time to suit you. Please contact the Admissions Team for more information at admissions@queenmargarets.com or 01904 727 630.

Assessment and Interview

QM is a non-selective School, however we require all international students to sit the following assessments as part of the admissions process:

The final part of the assessment process will be a video interview with the Head or a member of our Senior Leadership Team, which will be approximately 30 minutes long. No specific preparation for the entrance assessments is needed; all candidates start on an equal footing, with identical opportunities to display their potential.


Offer of a Place

Following the assessments and interview, we aim to make a decision on your application within two weeks. Our busiest time is between October and January, so you may experience a slight delay at this time.

Your offer letter will be accompanied by an Acceptance Form and a copy of our Terms and Conditions; to accept the offer, all parties with parental responsibility for the applicant must sign and return the completed form with the deposit to the Admissions Team before the date specified in the offer letter.

For more information on the assessment process and the selection criteria, including for Sixth Form, our Admissions Policy can be downloaded below.

Prior to joining the School all international pupils must meet all necessary UK visa requirements and are required to have an Education Guardian in the UK. Please ensure you have read the Educational Guardianship policy, which can be found on the website here, before selecting a guardian.

Boarding makes a particularly strong contribution to pupils' social development: they build strong supportive relationships with fellow boarders that sustain them during their time at School.
