Queen Anne’s is an independent boarding and day school for girls with over 440 pupils aged 11 to 18 years. High aspirations combined with a positive approach to learning creates an environment where girls can grow into motivated, decisive and self-assured individuals. We are renowned for academic success alongside a rich programme of extra-curricular opportunities and excellence in the arts, drama, music and sport. As a Church of England School we are part of The Grey Coat Hospital Foundation, Westminster, London. Located in Caversham, Berkshire, the school is situated to the north of Reading near Henley-on-Thames and is just over 40 minutes from London. School transport is available from destinations throughout Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, London and the South. The best way to find out about Queen Anne’s is to talk to those at the heart of our community – our pupils!

All teaching takes place on the main site with a complementary mixture of traditional and modern teaching facilities. The recent opening of 'The Space', our new Sixth Form Centre, is designed to allow the girls to concentrate on their personal development whilst planning their futures in a creative environment that links them to life at university and beyond.

At Queen Anne's, we have developed a programme called BrainCanDo working with psychologists and neuroscientists from leading universities to help us understand how the teenage brain develops, how to learn efficiently and how to stay healthy. We have looked at how memory works, how stress can aid performance, how emotion regulation develops in adolescence and how a better understanding of our brains can help us to improve performance and lead happier, more fulfilled lives.

Head Julia Harrington is forthright about her aim: To make girls aware of who they are and what they can do. Thus was born the World Class, In Class programme, to show her pupils the best by bringing the best to them. Musicians had a workshop with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, for example. But no one is pushed or pigeonholed. In fact, Queen Annes has a refreshingly accommodating way of doing things. Saturdays activity mornings are optional (but always packed) and, despite being lacrosse fiends, the girls here also have national representatives in hockey, dressage and real tennis. Boarding is grown-up, with lots of flexi options, and the new sixth-form block is more like a university hall of residence. Day students and boarders are happily mixed and everyone has a study bolthole. The dramanauts scooped 11 medals at the Woodley Arts Festival, while one leaver made it to RADA last year. Plus, 33 per cent achieved full marks in at least one of their maths A-level papers. Girls are mature but also enthusiastic. Theres lots of high-fiving in the quad between seniors and juniors, and weve heard hymn practice is a riot.Good Schools Guide
