Queen Margaret's School for Girls

Queen Margaret's School for Girls is an all-girls boarding and day school in an idyllic countryside setting where every girl can thrive. We were recently named as Independent School of the Year for Student Wellbeing in the Independent Schools of the Year Awards 2021. Our girls are nurtured with all the support, tuition and inspiration they need to become happy and successful women of tomorrow.

We provide a flexible structure which includes places for day girls, flexi boarders and full boarders with hours to suit modern, busy families.

At the heart of a QM education is a love of learning which is supported by a healthy body and healthy mind. We are proud of our reputation for being a first-class sporting school, there are opportunities to play a wide variety of sports and be part of a strong team every day. QM is unique in that girls play three winter team games - Lacrosse, Hockey and Netball, simultaneously. This means that there is a very strong culture of involvement in team games by girls at all levels of the School. QM offers a vast range of sports and activities to nurture every girl’s physical and mental wellbeing, from Swimming and Tennis to Personal Training and Riding.

Facilities include an impressive indoor heated swimming pool which is located in the Sports Hall and is 25m long by 13m wide. With a shallow end of 1m and reaching a depth of 2.5m, the pool is used for Swimming lessons, Water Polo, Aqua Aerobics, pool parties, lifeguard training and more. An Outdoor Pool is also available during the Summer Term.

Netball Courts, AstroTurf and Sport pitches create a fantastic all-weather outdoor sport facility for students. With onsite sets of Tennis Courts within the grounds, girls can enjoy individual, pair or small group Tennis lessons. QM’s Sports Hall is a vast space, suitable for all manner of indoor sports and housing its own Cardio Suite. Squash courts are also available. QMFit is an outside fitness trail providing a full body workout with age-appropriate equipment - the aim being to encourage students to make the most of the school’s beautiful grounds.
