THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR DAUGHTER’S FUTURE

A warm welcome to Queen Anne’s School, an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18, located in Caversham, Berkshire with approximately 60% day and 40% boarding students. Renowned for academic success alongside outstanding pastoral care and an award-winning Sixth Form centre. Students will excel and achieve at the school through first-class teaching, education clinics, co-curricular opportunities and pastoral care. The school delivers a high quality all-round education both inside and outside the classroom, together with a positive approach to learning that guides the girls to become ever more self-assured and prepared for life after school.

‘There’s something magical about the place’, said one parent; ‘it’s as much about life preparation as academics’. And with such an array of first class facilities, tip top pastoral care, plus a culture of female empowerment, we think it’s definitely one for the list of any parent for whom happiness and roundedness are top priorities.

Everything about this school sings success. Head Julia Harrington ‘has endless energy and is fully involved in all of school life
(Tatler)

It’s hard to know a girl who wouldn’t love it here. It has the acreage and pristine grounds of a top country school, but happens to be a mile outside the centre of Reading
