Head PhotoQueen Margaret's is a school where girls aim high and exceed their expectations. At the heart of a QM education is a love of learning supported by a healthy body and a healthy mind. Nestled in 75 acres of Yorkshire countryside QM is fully equipped with all the facilities you would expect from a leading independent school, yet small enough to provide a homely atmosphere. At Queen Margaret's girls thrive in an environment where they are treated as individuals, encouraged to think for themselves and to participate in a wealth of clubs, activities and societies outside academic lessons. QM is a lively and modern school for girls who aspire to be leaders in every walk of life.

Outstanding teaching and academic excellence QM girls take advantage of the varied programme of studies and activities. They achieve excellence inside and outside the classroom and become interesting, well-informed and confident members of the community. QM offers a full range of academic subjects at GCSE and A Level, and examination results are consistently excellent. Our public examination results put us among the leading schools in the country.

Scholarships are available in recognition of academic excellence and individual talent. QM offers Academic, Art, Dance, Drama, Music, Choral and Sport Scholarships and awards are made at any age to either external or internal candidates.

An ideal environment
QM is a community of people who care for each other and grow as individuals. 70% of girls are full boarders and QM also welcomes day girls from York and the surrounding villages. 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.

Enrichment activities
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.

Girls leave Queen Margaret's with an enthusiasm for learning and friendships which will last a lifetime.
