The Queen’s School, Chester

An outstanding independent school for girls aged 4-18 in the heart of Chester – You want the best for your daughter and so do we.

At The Queen’s School, we promise to nurture your daughter in a supportive environment specifically designed for girls to help her embrace changes, reach her potential and achieve more than she ever dreamt possible. We will give your daughter a strong foundation from which to build, ensuring that she is challenged and supported in a way that suits her needs and ambitions. We develop intellectually curious, lifelong learners who are resilient leaders and collaborators with a global outlook.

  • Uniquely positioned to focus on educating and developing girls
  • Individualised approach to learning
  • Strong focus on languages including Mandarin and Spanish
  • Exceptional outdoor learning including Forest activities and a specialised Beach School
  • Unique Queen’s Baccalaureate programme for Sixth Form
  • Extensive enrichment programme

We give pupils self believe and the opportunities to explore and try new things. In particular we want our girls to:

  • Think independently
  • Collaborate confidently
  • Aspire globally

We bring the world into the classroom through a multi-layered approach that gives girls exposure that transcends geographic and cultural boundaries. We foster a global perspective by immersing pupils in experiences that develop a deep understanding and appreciation of other cultures. We want pupils to contribute successfully in the global community by developing global competence: the attitudes, knowledge, and skills needed to live and work in today’s interconnected world matched with global competence to participate as empathetic, engaged, and effective citizens.

Our Forest activities and Beach programme at The Lower School help children develop many skills that are hard to teach in the classroom. They encourage children to be active, assess situations, take risks and make decisions, with lots of activities to develop both fine and gross motor skills. Pupils learn to be self-sufficient and take care of themselves, which boosts their confidence and self-esteem.

All of this takes place in a caring environment where no one gets lost or slips through the net thanks to our close knit school community and individual approach to learning. Indeed being a smaller school dedicated to the education of girls, we can offer a level of pastoral and academic support that is second to none.
