Our co-curricular enrichment opportunities are wide-ranging and diverse.

“Queen Margaret’s has been ranked as the best all-girls school in North Yorkshire, with York being singled out for having perhaps the best education provision in the north of England” The Sunday Times School Guide 2021

In 2020, 76% of all girls achieved three or more A*-B A Level grades and 64% of all girls secured two or more A*-A grades – a figure which has gone from strength to strength over the last five years. With an average A Level class size of five students, QM teachers have had the opportunity to really understand the needs of the individual girls. This was demonstrated in the results with 86% of all A Level grades being A*-Bs.

Our Year V girls worked diligently throughout their GCSE courses, right up to the end of term. The excellent results they have been awarded are reflective of their commitment to learning and provide a springboard for their future studies.
