Get Settled In

Home from Home

Whether a full boarder, flexible boarder or day girl, every student is encouraged to take part in the many activities on offer which are designed to create a cohesive and fun environment for all.

Queen Margaret's is a small school, set in 75 acres of breathtaking rural parkland and situated just six miles from York. We offer a flexible boarding structure with hours designed to fit busy family life.

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.

Weekends are a busy affair and can include anything from high energy trips to the trampoline park to more relaxed visits to museums and stately homes. Our girl-led Community Weekends are a highlight in the calendar - packed full of exhilarating activities and experiences, making for a thriving boarding community for all to enjoy.

I was nervous at first but the fun activities soon helped me to make friends in my year group.
