What says..

Horizontal boarding structure: girls live with their year group all the way through. Really liked by both girls and parents. 'Enables great camaraderie and the foundations of lifelong friendships,' observed one pleased parent. Younger girls envious of the privilege of pain au chocolat delivered to sixth form houses for breakfast - all very civilised. Sport for all here with games keenly contested at house level and a full inter-school fixtures list. Stunning facilities...

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 freethinking, courageous individual prepared to take her learning to the next level and her place in a changing world.

More than 75% 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.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Head

Since September 2019, Susan Baillie, previously pastoral director at Newcastle Royal Grammar. Started her career at Barnard Castle School, has been head of history and politics at selective day and boarding schools, and was second deputy head at Kimbolton. Enjoys walking, running and cooking: feels her greatest victory has been winning the local village cheese scone competition. Married to a Yorkshireman with a young daughter plus a cockapoo called Monty, an elderly cat called Polly and six hens.

Academic matters

Excellent academic results almost taken as read by parents and success matters despite entry not being particularly selective. Overall A level performance consistently good, with 2019 grades 42 per cent A*/A and 71 per cent A*/B on the up. Mathematics, biology, economics, English, chemistry, languages and the arts popular and no weaknesses; psychology a new addition....

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

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.
