Queen Anne's girls

Academic

Mr Mark Richards, Deputy Head-AcademicMr Mark Richards, Deputy Head – Academic, oversees all aspects of the curriculum at Queen Anne’s School and is supported by Mrs Gill Little, Assistant Head.

We aim to provide an excellent all-round education to girls between the ages of 11 – 18, ensuring that all girls reach their full academic potential and are fully supported to achieve this.

We want all our pupils to attain outstanding academic results and we commit to providing each of them with the opportunities, the encouragement and the advice they will need to develop to their full potential. Our girls are encouraged to discover their passions and achieve in all areas including sport, music, drama and the arts, while developing their interpersonal skills and confidence.

Queen Anne’s academic standards are consistently high, and our Value Added scores are excellent.  Our girls consistently achieve excellent results at GCSE and A Level, securing places at top universities in the UK and abroad.

We teach in small classes where each individuals can explore the learning culture in a supportive environment while being challenged and stimulated by group discussion and debate. Prep (homework) is designed to consolidate and revisit work outside the classroom, driving independent study and thinking skills.

We aim:

  • To provide an outstanding learning experience through excellence in teaching and learning.
  • To encourage each girl to reach her full potential and to strive for excellence in all areas of school life.
  • To develop girls’ self-esteem so that they have the confidence to use individual talents, skills and knowledge effectively.
  • To develop skills of communication, analysis and independent thinking so that the girls are equipped to be flexible, lifelong learners and prepared for a rapidly changing society.
  • To encourage a positive awareness of the spiritual dimension to life and the development of a moral code, including the value of mutual respect and tolerance, underpinned by the Christian ethos of the school.
  • To encourage the girls to broaden their experiences by participating in a wide range of activities such as art, drama, music and sport.

We’re taught that natural talent will only get you so far. You need persistence and lots of hard work to be really successful.  The teachers have helped me a lot by stretching and encouraging me.
