Aiming to be best

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

“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 in Caversham, one of the country’s leading schools for girls.

“It is our job as educators to inspire our pupils,” continues Mrs Harrington.

“We promote a ‘no limits’ learning culture, which is enhanced by bringing in professionals from the worlds of academia, performing arts, sport and enterprise to show the girls what they can achieve with hard work and determination.”

Renowned for academic success, the school brings external specialists into the classroom 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 can grow into motivated, decisive and self-assured individuals.

The result is empowered young women, who not only receive excellent academic results but who have developed a lifelong passion for learning and the skills, knowledge and confidence to reach their goals.

Whether your daughter becomes an engineer designing robots to navigate deep space, an international legal advocate or a brain surgeon, it is Queen Anne’s job to ensure she is equipped to deal with working life.

Queen Anne’s School for girls aged 11 to 18 is located in Caversham. The school currently has more than 420 girls. Approximately half the girls board and half attend as day pupils. Transport is available throughout Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

The open mornings are designed to give prospective pupils and their parents a flavour of the school. Tours begin at 9.30am and take just over an hour.

You can ask your tour guide — one of the girls — anything. They don’t have a script and will give you their honest feedback on what life is like as a Queen Anne’s girl.

The next open morning will take place on Friday, June 14 from 9.30am. Please visit www.qas.org.uk/ bookonline to reserve your place.
