“I BELIEVE that to be the best, you need to know what the best looks like” says Julia Harrington, headmistress of Queen Anne’s, one of the country’s leading boarding schools for girls.
“It is our job as educators to inspire our pupils. We promote a ‘no limits’ learning culture which is enhanced by bringing in professionals to show the girls what they can achieve with hard work and determination.”
Combining a culture of high aspirations and a positive approach to learning, Queen Anne’s creates an environment where girls can grow into motivated, decisive and self-assured individuals. The result is empowered young women who not only receive excellent academic results but who develop a lifelong passion for learning and the skills, knowledge and confidence to reach their goals.
This year Queen Anne’s is celebrating a bumper set of A-level results. Straight A* and A grades were achieved by 24 per cent of girls, with 90 per cent achieving A* to C grades. More than a third of students studying chemistry or maths achieved the top starred grade and 100 per cent of the school’s Oxbridge candidates secured their places for next year.
At GCSE level, 97 per cent of pupils achieved A* to C grades, and 80 per cent of grades in English, Latin and the sciences were A* and A. In drama, English literature and geography 95 per cent of grades achieved were A* to B.
Queen Anne’s School for girls aged 11 to 18 is located on Henley Road, Caversham. Transport is available throughout Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
