Senior School for Girls in Hatfield, Hertfordshire

For more than 125 years, Queenswood has delivered a truly progressive education in the most idyllic of environments. Set in 120 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, just 20 minutes by fast train from Central London, the school community of around 490 pupils is large enough to offer outstanding opportunities, yet small enough that girls are known personally to teaching and support staff alike.

Their individuality, unique potential and special qualities are nurtured and realised. Over 40% of pupils at Queenswood are boarders, either boarding full-time or flexibly. Girls enjoy the exceptional facilities in each of the boarding houses, developing their independence and key skills such as empathy and inquisitiveness.

Queenswood is a community where pupils achieve outstanding results, both in and beyond the classroom. The opportunities for growth and development are extensive, exciting and fun. Pupils engage enthusiastically in the school’s dynamic curriculum including their well-known specialisms of sports and the creative and performing arts.
