A message from the Principal, Mrs R M Kamaryc
Queen’s Gate Junior School is a small, friendly school where individuality is nurtured, where academic standards are high and where a broad based curriculum ensures a well-rounded education. Extra-curricular activities extend horizons and enrich the lives of all pupils. This all takes place within a strong pastoral care system and in light and spacious buildings. The school was established as a non–denominational Christian foundation, but we welcome children of all faiths and from a range of cultural backgrounds. Diversity, we believe, enhances the richness of our community.
We value our history and maintain a healthy respect for tradition, but at the same time we are committed to change where appropriate. In September 2007, we entered an exciting new period in our long history when we moved into our splendid new buildings at 125 and 126 Queen’s Gate, just a few yards down the road from the Senior School, whose site we shared for many years. The new buildings which have been beautifully restored boast spacious form rooms, three fully equipped laboratories, a state of the art ICT Room, a separate Art and DT studio and an elegant Assembly Hall. We also use some of the Senior School facilities, and our girls benefit from specialist subject teaching from Senior School staff. Senior girls often visit the Junior School to assist with activities, thus reinforcing the continuity of education from 4-18 available at Queen’s Gate.
We make full use of the excellent benefits of being a central London school; we are conveniently situated to take full advantage of the local museums of South Kensington and the concert venue of the Royal Albert Hall, as well as being just a stone’s throw from Hyde Park for recreational activities.
We have a lively and vibrant school, and we do hope that you will come and visit us to see, first hand, what makes Queen’s Gate such an individual school. We have Open Mornings in the Autumn and Spring Terms when girls from Years 5 and 6 will be delighted to show you around, but please feel free to make an individual appointment to visit at any time during the year. Our staff and I very much look forward to meeting you.

A message from the Director of the Junior School, Mr J Denchfield
At Queen’s Gate Junior School, our pupils enjoy a challenging education within a nurturing environment.
We are a small, friendly school, but we enjoy all of the benefits of a wide community. Both the Junior and Senior Schools take advantage of shared resources, and our ethos, underpinned by the belief that every child is an individual, is consistent.
From our historic corner of South Kensington, the whole of London is on our doorstep and we make full use of the advantages of this great city in our teaching and enrichment activities.
The Queen’s Gate curriculum is very broad. Such a well-rounded experience allows our girls to thrive as independent thinkers, fully engaged in all that they do.
Please come and visit us— you are very welcome at any time!
Mr James Denchfield BA Hons PGCE
