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. There is no such thing as a ‘Queen Anne’s girl’. Here at Queen Anne’s independent boarding and day school you will find a strong community of real girls. Girls who are curious, intellectually alive, energetic and eager to learn, grow and explore. Girls who are individuals. 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.
Queen Anne’s offers girls from all backgrounds, an opportunity for individuality, personal growth and happiness. Queen Anne’s has allowed me aspire to achieve great things and has given me opportunities I will forever be thankful for. One aspect of Queen Anne’s I believe is vital, is the community spirit and the feeling around the school that girls can be individuals and should not shy away from taking chances. Confidence is a quality that shines through many Queen Anne’s girls and is a skill that I see as crucial to any woman aspiring to become successful in the world we live in. As Head Girl I see inspiring confidence as a key part to my role, through encouraging girls to take part in, and hosting public speaking events. The school motto, ‘Quietness and Strength’ showcases this perfectly and demonstrates that girls can accomplish what they want with modest confidence.
Being Head Girl of Queen Anne’s is both a pride and a privilege. At Queen Anne’s learning is enjoyable and determination is always encouraged. We work within an environment where all voices are heard and realised, where creativity is unleashed and ideas are set free. Kindness and resilience are central to all that we do and with the support of our amazing staff, we are moulded into the best versions of ourselves. As Queen Anne’s girls, our individuality shines for the benefit of all. For myself and Evie this year, it is most important to us that we are able to establish a strong relationship with each and every girl, acting as student voices and a bridge between the students and staff. We hope to achieve this particularly through our year group parliaments, held each week. So far, they have been extremely successful and we have greatly enjoyed spending time with each year individually, in a relaxed environment. In the 125th year of Queen Anne’s we are extremely excited about all the things that are to come and the year ahead.
At Queen Anne’s we value our girls as individuals and strive to help them reach their potential. Strong academic and pastoral care encourages students to build confidence, stretch their abilities and achieve their goals. We are confident that your daughter will shine and achieve at Queen Anne’s.
We understand how important it is to choose the right school for your daughter and the information we can give you might not be enough. Therefore, we invite you to take time to explore the various inspections that have taken place over recent years and be assured Queen Anne’s is everything we claim it to be.
