About Queen Anne's School

Girls can attend Queen Anne's daily or on a full, weekly, flexi- or occasional board basis according to individual family needs. Each girl, whether day or boarding, belongs to a House and the House system is integral to our academic and pastoral care. Currently approximately half the pupils board and half attend on a daily basis. Queen Anne's campus is a beautiful and inspiring setting. It occupies 35 acres just north of the River Thames, between Henley-on-Thames and Reading and is easily accessible from London. The grounds combine traditional Victorian architecture with new and comtemporary buildings to provide cutting edge facilites. The school day begins at 8am and ends at 6.30pm, with the exception of Wednesdays when the day finishes at 4.30pm. The extended day enables the girls to take part in extra-curricular activities and academic clinics and complete prep. As a result, when the schol day finishes at 6.30pm, the evening is the girls' own to relax and spend quality time with family and friends. In the key academic years of GCSE, AS and A Level the girls will have additional private study and extended prep to complete in their own time.

At Queen Anne’s School, girls usually enter the school at 11+ (Year 7),13+ (Year 9) or Sixth Form (Year 12). We promote individuality in our girls and assess each girl on an individual basis and recognise potential. In order to take part in our entrance procedures girls must be registered with Queen Anne’s School 11+ and 13+ Applicants For both 11+ and 13+ entry we hold an Assessment Day which takes place in October, prior to Common Entrance in January. Girls take a written English paper as well as completing online (www.cem.org) Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-verbal Reasoning texts and they also take part in a group interview. A reserved place may be offered (subject to Common Entrance). All girls sit the 11+ or 13+ Common Entrance Examinations in Mathematics, English and Science, which take place in the January of the year of entry. Academic Scholarships are awarded to a limited number of girls as a result of the Common Entrance Examinations. Sixth Form Applicants The application process for the Sixth Form takes place during the autumn term prior to the year of entry. The requirement for entry is a minimum of six A*- B (or 9 - 6) grades at GCSE (including English Language and mathematics) and A*- B (or 9 - 6) grades in the subjects to be studied for A level, together with a satisfactory reference from her current school.
