Visit Queen Anne’s on the spring open morning

QUEEN ANNE’s School in Caversham invites prospective pupils and their parents to an open morning on Friday, March 1 at

QUEEN ANNE’s School in Caversham invites prospective pupils and their parents to an open morning on Friday, March 1 at 9.30am. Renowned for academic success, Queen Anne’s is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18.

Queen Anne’s currently has more than 420 girls, approximately half the girls board and half attend as day pupils. The open morning is designed to give you a flavour of the school. Tours begin at 9.30am and will take just over an hour. You can ask your tour guide — one of our girls — anything. They don’t have a script and will give you their honest feedback on what life as a Queen Anne’s girl is really like. At 11.30am we invite you to join us for some refreshments and to hear a brief talk from Mrs Julia Harrington, headmistress.

No one knows what the world will look like in 10, 20 or 30 years’ time. Whether your daughter becomes an engineer designing robots to navigate deep space, a multi-lingual international legal advocate, or a brain surgeon, the global landscape of her life will be ever changing. It is Queen Anne’s job to ensure your daughter is equipped to deal with her “Life on Mars” and the school aims to provoke patterns of intellectual behaviour and provide strategies that shape effective inquiry and encourage independent learning. Visit Queen Anne’s to find out more about the Life and Learning Programme, developed by experts, to see how the school uses brain plasticity theories to enhance the curriculum.

Headmistress, Julia Harrington said: “In our experience, teaching students how to learn, using methods best suited to them as an individual, results in a ‘no limits’ approach to their future achievements. Our girls are living proof that with hard work, persistence, confidence, resilience and intelligent thinking they can lead the way into the 21st century.”
