Set in 35 acres and just a short walk from the River Thames, Queen Anne’s School, Caversham, is an independent boarding and day school for girls between the ages of 11-18.
The school prepares over 450 students every year for an ever-changing world through an exciting and continually evolving education, steeped in excellence and innovation.
Queen Anne’s is a school that prepares kind, strong and fierce young women for the ever-changing world ahead. The cutting-edge curriculum and outstanding teaching is underpinned by BrainCanDo, the psychology and neuroscience research programme founded by Headmistress Julia Harrington. “You cannot teach, guide or inspire a teenager with any success unless you understand what stimulates their exuberant brains, or stalls and depresses them,” says Mrs Harrington. “Our positive and inclusive approach to learning and behaviours helps every girl to get the best from themselves. It supports and inspires while at school but also prepares them for successful and happy lives.”
The outstanding facilities have been enhanced with the Scott Music Centre, boasting a state-of-the-art recording studio, a suite of iMacs and an impressive recital hall. Such facilities have allowed young musicians at Queen Anne’s to thrive. The next phase of development will see the creation of a 3G artificial turf to reflect the school’s strong sporting ethos.
In 2020 100% of all GCSE exams received 9-4 (A*-C) grades with 50% of grades achieving 9/8/7 (A*/A). At A-level 78% of grades received A*, A or B, with leavers securing places at top universities, including Manchester, UCL, Exeter, King’s College London, Leeds, Durham, St Andrews, York and Nottingham, across a wide range of disciplines including Politics, Philosophy and Economics, Fashion Management, Medicine, Law, Physics with Astrophysics and International Business.
Queen Anne’s School strives to support busy families and offers and an extensive transport network with buses covering the local areas of Henley and Marlow, and further afield to London. The flexibility of day, flexi and full boarding options allow families to choose the right balance for their needs.
