The special needs of any individual pupil are recognised and respected. Any pupils with medical conditions will be properly supported in order to allow them full access to education, including school trips and physical education. A special educational need or disability is not a barrier to joining the school.
We pride ourselves on knowing our pupils well. Small class sizes and continuous, yet low-key, assessments ensure that no pupil slips through the net. One-to-one sessions or small group intervention programmes to support phonics, reading skills and mathematics take place for recommended pupils. High achieving pupils are quickly recognised and stimulated through differentiated challenges and investigations.
A fully trained specialist team of staff embrace this area of the school in close partnership with all staff to ensure that a cohesive, inclusive and progressive approach is dedicated to every pupil.
There are several academic Scholarships available to girls at Queen’s, both at Year 7 entry and in the Sixth Form. Each Scholarship signifies excellence in the area to which it relates and should be a source of great pride to the holder. Each Scholarship is essentially an honorary award but does also carry a small financial award, which is credited to the pupil’s fees account in the term in which it is awarded.
Bursaries will normally be provided when girls enter the School at Year 7 or Year 12. These are known as entry bursaries and will be offered to parents who are unable to provide the tuition fees. These can be renewed each academic year, subject to need. In 2018 The Queen’s School celebrated 140 years as a centre of excellence for teaching and developing girls to be the best they can be. To mark this occasion, we are offering Queen’s Anniversary Bursaries which will be open to girls who are joining the school at Sixth Form.
Whatever the age of your daughter you can be confident that Queen’s offers a unique and exceptional environment in which she will thrive.
We offer a stimulating education in a rich and varied learning environment, and the results speak for themselves. We’re proud to be a Times Top 100 school for A-level results, and girls make outstanding academic and developmental progress across the board, preparing them to lead and shape the world in which they live.
But more than that, Queen’s provides a warm, nurturing environment which both inspires and supports girls, offering numerous opportunities that encourage them to embrace challenges in order that they may achieve their absolute best. Our goal for every Queen’s girl is that she leaves us able to think independently, collaborate confidently, and aspire globally.
Whilst this web site gives a sense of how we approach this, to understand fully what makes Queen’s a school where girls thrive, I would recommend that you see and feel this for yourself.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to discover for yourself the benefits a Queen’s education can offer your daughter.
Mrs Sue Wallace-Woodroffe
Head of The Queen’s School
