A Day in the Life

Follow Sixth Former, Rose, as she takes you through a day in the life of a QM girl...

Meet Head Girl Emily

Hi! I’m Emily and I’m honoured to be this year’s Head Girl. QM is a brilliant place full of girls with a desire to achieve. Yet this desire is never held above compassion and kindness, which is what makes the school special.

Daily Life at Queen Margaret’s

Day pupils to QM can begin arriving at the school at 7:30, and every girl should be ready for the day by 8:15am in time for House registration.

Assembly & Tutorials

After registration, all students attend either assembly (which occurs once a week), chapel or tutorials (which both occur twice a week). In tutorials, each girl has her own personal tutor to oversee her academic progress and general wellbeing.

Lessons then start at 9:00am, and girls have a break at 10:55am, followed by lunch at 12:10pm.

Horizontal Boarding

Daily life at Queen Margaret’s can vary depending on what year the girls are in, from the cosy farmhouse dorm of Red House for Year I-II, to independent living in The Cottages for our upper Sixth.

Learn more about boarding at QM here.

After School Clubs

After lessons, extracurricular activities are an integral part of QM, from sport clubs and horse riding, to academic groups and creative activities. Our girls are given opportunities to exceed and enjoy themselves in a wide range of skills and hobbies.
