‘There are no limits to learning’

“I BELIEVE that to be the best, you need to know what the best looks like,” says Julia

“I BELIEVE that to be the best, you need to know what the best looks like,” says Julia Harrington, headmistress of Queen Anne’s School, one of the country’s leading independent schools for girls.

“We believe that learning is far more than just gathering information. Our brains can do amazing things if you know how to use them.

“There are no limits to learning, no need to curb curiosity and no ceiling to success. Girls throughout the school are able to recognise excellence and learn how to develop both the skills and the mindset to achieve it.”

Renowned for academic success, the school brings external specialists into the school to work with the girls so that they are encouraged to discover their passions and realise their ambitions.

Combined with a learning culture of high aspirations and a positive approach to learning, Queen Anne’s creates an environment where the girls grow into motivated, decisive and self-assured individuals.

The result is empowered young women who achieve excellent academic results and develop a lifelong passion for learning and the skills, knowledge and confidence to reach their goals.

This year, Queen Anne’s is celebrating another successful year of GCSE and A-level results. In the sixth form, 34 per cent of all A-levels achieved were at A* to A grades and 64 per cent of grades were A* to B. As well as achieving fantastic grades, 100 per cent of the school’s Oxbridge candidates secured their places for next year.

Exceptional results were also achieved at GCSE level, with 64 per cent of pupils achieving A*/A grades — and with 28 per cent of all grades at A*. Thirty-seven per cent of girls achieved nine or more A*/A grades.

Queen Anne’s School for girls aged 11 to 18 is located in Caversham. Transport is available throughout Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

The next open morning at Queen Anne’s will take place on Saturday, September 17, from 9.30am. Please visit to reserve your place.
