Visit Queen Margaret's
Of course, the best way to experience our School is to book a visit, either as part of an Open Day or at a time to suit you.
We are proud of being a small school; our tailored class sizes foster a tight-knit and supportive community, where girls are known by name in their lessons, on the hockey pitch and even in the dining hall. The Good Schools Guide says "QM is small but perfectly formed and has everything you could wish for, unless you crave anonymity and getting lost in the crowd."(read The Good Schools Guide Review here). Our girls never get lost in the crowd.
We work closely with our students to identify their individual ambitions and interests, and weekly one-on-one Personal Tutor sessions make sure that girls are on the right track from Year I through to UVI.
The support each girl needs is inevitably varied and variable. Some girls will look for academic support through our very well respected PASS (Progress, Achievement and Student Support) Department. Others will need emotional support through the services of our professionally staffed Health and Wellbeing Centre and some will simply need that open door, time and willingness to listen when things feel a little tough. We have the support structures in place to get each girl ready for life, whatever her calling. With 24 GCSE subjects and 29 A Level subjects on offer, a personalised timetable is created for every student.
