Queen’s Gate is a small school, with just one class for each year. This enables us to give our pupils a great deal of individual attention. It is also a very caring school, where each child is valued and nurtured through close monitoring, and where support and extension are provided where appropriate. Personal success is celebrated on a regular basis, and the annual prize-giving provides the opportunity for parents to share in this celebration. Our pupils are encouraged to show respect for themselves and for each other, and to develop self-discipline. Our House system (Victoria and Elizabeth) enables us to provide an additional support network based on a vertical division of the School. Older and younger girls can collaborate closely, and it provides healthy competition in a range of activities. Rewards and sanctions are linked to the House system, thus developing individual and collective responsibility for actions.
We are very family-orientated, welcoming siblings and the children of Old Girls; many families have a long association with the School over several generations. Our caring ethos extends beyond School; girls are encouraged to raise money for a wide range of charities and good causes including the annual Swimathon for The British Heart Foundation and the Readathon for the Roald Dahl Foundation. Children are also encouraged to use their initiative to raise money for other charities of their own choice, and do so with great success.
This school has a very big heart!
