What the school says...
A Queen Margaret's education is an exciting, challenging and enriching experience. Our girls are part of a community of people who care for each other and grow as individuals. They develop a wealth of skills for use in their own lives and ideals to make a difference in the world. At the heart of a QM education is a love of learning, which is supported by a healthy body and healthy mind.
When a girl has completed her education at QM she will be a free-thinking, courageous individual prepared to take her learning to the next level and her place in a changing world.
More than 85% of girls are full boarders, and the quality of pastoral care and strong sense of community ensure that all girls settle in quickly and join in every aspect of school life with enthusiasm and purpose. Our girls thrive on healthy and energetic lifestyles. Sport is very important at QM and the school boasts exceptional facilities. The creative arts also play a central role in life at QM. The purpose-built theatre, dance studio and modern art and technology facilities provide the ideal setting for every girl to discover and develop her talents, whatever her interests. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
The function of the Pupil Support department is to help individual girls improve their essential skills, which in turn increases self esteem and motivation. A girl who may need such help is first assessed by a specialist teacher and any subsequent educational programmes deemed necessary are tailored to meet her specific needs. Areas of specialist support include literacy, numeracy and EAL. Tuition is generally on a one-to-one basis and is available to girls at any time betwee the ages of 11-18. By employing a broad range of intervention strategies, the Pupil Support staff aim to provide the environment in which all girls can fulfil their potential. Nov 09.
