Hear what our former girls have to say..
"The friendships were very, very deep and close, and very valuable at the time. Perhaps they provided one with a sort of pattern and measure of what friendship can be like, and in the friendships that I’ve developed later on, I have always looked for and valued the same degree of getting to know the other person and being willing to share things with them."
Elisabeth Hutchings (Henderson, 1954-1961):
"I suppose the very best thing was making friends. I made wonderful friends at QM who are still great friends, we still get together and reminisce. Very sadly my best friend, Caroline Peltzer who was the Head Girl when I was Deputy, she died about, oh it must be about seven or eight years ago now – she was a terrific friend, and we had a lot of fun. A lot of fun, and I’m sure I learnt a bit along the way as well!"
Elspeth Lewis (Armstrong, 1961-1968)
"The Theatre and Dance Studio were very special places to me. I used to go there in an evening with my friends and we would make up dances, drama scenes and just be creative in general. It always felt like such a safe space to chill out and forget about the academic side of school for a while."
Georgie Deri (2013-2018)

"The School has encouraged me to strive to be the best I can be, whilst also ensuring that good values and kind behaviour are at the heart of everything I do."
"When I joined QM I knew nobody but now I basically know every single person and I wouldn't have been able to do it without the Community Weekends which bring everybody together."
