What the school says...
Queen's College occupies four elegant and spacious houses in Harley Street. The College is academically selective, and great importance is placed on the development of the talents of each individual girl and on pastoral care. Results are impressive, and students go on to competitive degree courses (including Oxbridge).
/> Classes are small yet the curriculum is wide at both GCSE and A-level. Five modern languages are taught as well as Latin and Greek; the three separate sciences are available throughout. Provision for the creative arts is outstanding and good use is made of the cultural resources of central London. Sport takes place in Regent's Park and a wide variety of activities are on offer, with a full programme of fixtures in the traditional team games.
Queen's College is a unique institution. It has an exceptional history behind it and an ambitious, warm and distinctive approach to the education of young women in the 21st century. ...Read more
