Queen Anne’s School

Senior School For Girls in Reading, Berkshire

Queen Anne’s is an inspirational day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18 set in 35 acres in the heart of Berkshire, with easy access to London.

The School aims to empower students; preparing them for an ever-changing world through an exciting and continually evolving education, steeped in excellence and true innovation. From the Sixth Form centre that could be mistaken for Google offices, to the careful support of the wellbeing programme, every girl is inspired to explore and enjoy her individuality. The extensive digital teaching and learning and outstanding academic support results in exceptional ‘value added’ scores at GCSE and A Level.


The school boasts a state-of-the art music centre, outstanding art, design, animation, and ceramics provision, an excellent cookery room as well as a 250-seat theatre and a thriving dance department. Lacrosse, netball, tennis, dance, trampolining, swimming, and athletics all feature highly both in academic PE and in the excellent extra-curricular programme, with football, badminton and cricket recent growing additions. The girls also benefit from amazing performance opportunities including at Westminster Abbey and Dorchester Abbey.

Boarding is very popular at Queen Anne’s; as well as regular badminton sessions and use of the fitness suite facilities we offer various weekend activities and trips. An experienced team of House Staff work closely with each girl’s family as well as Academic Tutors and Heads of Year to ensure that the individual needs of each girl are met. Discounts are available for families of the British Armed Forces and siblings.
