At Queen’s Gate, our mission is to offer an education for life in a stimulating environment where sound values and individuality are nurtured within a supportive atmosphere.
Our aim is for every girl not only to realise her potential, but to exceed it. We achieve this through encouraging each girl to adopt an aspirational, growth mindset and by fostering an atmosphere where self-motivation and self-confidence are key. Alongside this, we provide close, individualised support, using our knowledge of each individual pupil, as well as her baseline data, to provide feedback and guidance that is truly relevant to her. We seek to instil a love of learning through engaging, innovative lessons while actively seeking to strengthen each girl’s self-confidence and self-esteem, qualities we know will support intellectual risk-taking and resilience.
We are proudly holistic in our ethos, promoting co-curricular involvement and the development of strong values-based character traits. We aim for our girls to have every opportunity to discover, develop and demonstrate her own gifts and talents, and to feel valued for what she personally brings to our community – and those around us. Since our foundation, Queen’s Gate has been dedicated to thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves, both near and far, and facilitate a wide range of charitable and outreach activities. A genuine generosity of spirit underpins all that we do, and makes our school a truly rewarding place to be.
We revel in our originality, encouraging fearless creativity and embracing the notion of authenticity. We wish for each girl to have the opportunity to be her true self, to feel empowered to pursue her own interests and inspired to challenge and explore. We are unashamed in our promotion of a positive, good-humoured atmosphere in which joy and laughter are ever-present, for we believe that the happiest girls are those who are most likely to over-achieve, in their academic endeavours, their co-curricular interests and their own personal development.
