High aspirations that shape school&rsquos culture

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

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

“Here at Queen Anne’s School you will find a strong community of real girls. Girls who are curious, intellectually alive, energetic and eager to learn, grow and explore. Girls who are individuals.”

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.

The Berkshire independent day and boarding school has also recently featured in the Sunday Times.

The school featured in an article discussing the effectiveness of attempting to control the inevitable stress and anxiety that surrounds exam season — and specifically a number of techniques adopted by pupils through the school&rsquos BrainCanDo Programme were featured.
