Queen’s High School has a proud history of academic achievement and is renowned for its ability to meet individual needs and fulfil potential. All girls are encouraged to believe in themselves and their ability to succeed. We promote the achievement of excellence in a learning environment that is safe, caring and accepting of diversity. The school is committed to the development of life-long learning skills that motivate and enable all students to make a positive contribution to society.

Learning is designed to develop understanding and to challenge students to push the boundaries of their thinking. The girls are encouraged to be creative, critical and caring thinkers. We want them to discover a passion for learning and life.
We provide an environment that encourages students to be self-disciplined, to learn from their mistakes, to be willing to take risks and to value their own and others’ thinking. Independent learning skills are developed within a technologically rich setting that includes collaborative, online learning environments.

Specialist teaching and a broad, innovative range of subject choices ensure that each girl’s individual strengths are fostered. Our teachers work together to provide a holistic, integrated approach to student development focusing on key competencies for learning and life. We are proud of our inclusive environment that means all students are assisted in accessing the curriculum.

We expect high standards of conduct, appearance and achievement. Our students enjoy their schooling, and the wide range of curriculum options helps motivate the girls to remain engaged for five years at school.

Queen’s girls leave school as confident, well-rounded, independent young women who can follow their aspirations and make the most of their opportunities in life.

We invite you to visit Queen’s and become part of our community.
