Queenswood School - Hatfield
Queenswood is an excellent choice for families looking for a well-established, all-round girls' boarding school close to London. The school was founded in 1894 and occupies a large and comfortable campus with very good facilities. The atmosphere is friendly and purposeful - this is a school where girls are kept busy and able to pursue whatever interests they may have.
Although by no means an academic 'hothouse' Queenswood girls do very well and exam results are consistently good. Queenswood offers an impressive range of languages, including Japanese, French, Italian and Spanish all available up to A-Level. Students in younger years are in sets for Maths and English and from Year 10 also for Science. The school's personalised learning centre provides additional support for any girl needing help, whether this is for dyslexia or other SEN or for extra guidance with an Oxbridge application.
Sixth formers enjoy their own study centre with its own social area and kitchens.
Sport is outstanding, especially hockey and tennis, and Queenswood hosts the national schools' clay court championships. Gymnastics, fencing and dance are all available as options. Music, drama and art are all very well catered for.
