“We are proud to say that there is no such thing as a ‘Queen Anne’s girl’! Here at Queen Anne’s School you will find a strong community of real girls. Girls who are individuals. Girls who are curious, thoughtful and eager to learn and grow, while also being energetic, passionate and exuberant about life.

Alongside outstanding academic grades, our girls care deeply about the world around them and ahead of them. We encourage them to explore all the possibilities: in the classroom, on the playing field, on the stage, behind the easel or anywhere else that their talents might take them.

We combine an excellent curriculumafter school clubs and activities with a strong pastoral programme to ensure that, along with outstanding academic preparation, the girls gain complementary skills that allow them to step confidently into the real world.” – Head, Elaine Purves


Founded in 1894, Queen Anne’s is an inspirational day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18 set in 35 acres in the heart of Berkshire, with easy access to London.

From the Sixth Form centre that could be mistaken for Google offices, to the careful support of the wellbeing programme, every girl is inspired to explore and enjoy her individuality, free from gender-stereotypes, in a safe environment that champions excellence and deep creativity.

The school is known for its performing and creative arts offering. It boasts a state-of-the-art music centre; outstanding art, design, animation, and ceramics provision; plus, a 250-seat theatre and a thriving dance department. The extensive digital teaching and learning and outstanding academic support results in exceptional ‘value added’ at GCSE and A Level. Lacrosse, netball, tennis, dance, trampolining, swimming, and athletics all feature highly both in academic PE and in the bursting extra-curricular programme, with football, badminton and cricket recent growing additions.
