We have a 'no limits' approach to the girls' learning and development
that produces excellent academic results and outstanding
achievements in every field.




Queen Anne’s is an independent boarding and day
school for girls, with over 450 pupils, aged 11 to 18
years. We fuel innovation and creativity.




We know girls perform best when they are happy and secure.
We see pastoral care and academic development as interwoven;
one cannot flourish without the other.


Shaping individuals

“There’s a lightness of touch to Queen Anne’s which we love…there’s a ‘winning atmosphere’ – girls are charm personified and seem to get on wonderfully.” 
(Tatler 2016)

Queen Anne’s School, an independent boarding and day school for girls, with over 450 pupils, aged 11 to 18 years, educates young women to become informed, bold, resourceful and ethical global citizens. The environment here fosters a love of learning, the habits of an intellectual life, the character, the moral strength and qualities for leadership to shape a changing world.


11+ AND 13+

At Queen Anne’s School, we promote individuality and, therefore, assess each girl on an individual basis.


Join us for the exciting transition to sixth form education. The personal and intellectual confidence you’ll develop in our Sixth Form  is deeply rewarding.


Each student brings something different and unique to our global community, as well as a little piece of their culture to help bridge the gap between countries.



We celebrate excellent results at both A Level and
GCSE, with many students achieving outstanding
grades and going on to study at some of the countries
top universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

“My daughter joined Queen Anne’s in L4 and we have seen a transformation in her confidence. Not only is she enthusiastic about her lessons, but she loves to board in an environment that has a lovely, calm and happy atmosphere."

“An inspiring education - Queen Anne's has given both our daughters a rounded education. The best foundation for university and life beyond"

Mr and Mrs Shearn

"Our objective in sending Alice to Queen Anne’s was so that she would look back on her school years as being the happiest of her life, where she formed lasting friendships and developed skills to fulfil her potential in life. As she nears the end of her seven years, we are so proud of the wonderful person that is our daughter and are assured that she will flourish in all aspects of her life"
