Boarding At QM
Queen Margaret's is a small boarding school, set in 75 acres of breath-taking rural parkland and situated just six miles from York. We offer a flexible boarding structure with hours designed to fit busy family life.
Horizontal Boarding System At QM
Vertical boarding arrangements can restrict the number of friends a girl can make within their own year group, which is why the horizontal boarding system at QM makes a girls’ journey through the boarding school so special. Horizontal boarding helps our girls to bond as a year group, so supporting one another and developing lifelong friendships. Housestaff can better focus on and cater for the specific needs of an age group, after all the highs and lows of the girls in Year I in Red House are very different to those of the girls in their final year at QM in The Cottages. Year I settle into School life around the Aga in a homely ‘farmhouse’ environment, whereas Upper Sixth girls have a real taste of independent living to prepare them for life after School. This means the different expectations and rules for each age group can be effectively managed.

As well as being a full girls boarding school in Yorkshire, we also offer a flexible boarding structure with hours designed to fit busy family life.
What Is Flexible Boarding?
Parents are welcome to drop their daughter off from 07:30 and miss the rush hour traffic or make that early meeting. If the day runs away then girls can be collected as late as 19:30 or they can simply stay over - our flexible hours and boarding structure are designed to fit in with ever-evolving, busy and modern lifestyles. We know all too well what it's like to juggle the many demands on your time. Take a look at the plan of the day here.
