Queen Margaret’s School for Girls

Established in 1901, QM is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18. You will find us in glorious parkland six miles south of York, but we are much more than our surroundings, we are more than a school. Our girls engage enthusiastically in a range of activities - no airs and graces, no frills or make-up, just girls getting stuck in, and having fun.

“Our girls have found QM to be a wonderful home from home where they are constantly supported and encouraged by the staff and engaged by the many opportunities available.” Current Forces Parents

Our girls achieve academically (outstandingly so) - our pass rate at A Level in 2021 was 100% and 78% of all grades were A*-A. Similarly, the pass rate at GCSE in 2021 was 100% and 33% of all GCSE results were grade 9. Each girl has a dedicated Personal Tutor to oversee her academic progress and her general wellbeing.
