Queen’s Gate School – Overview

Queen’s Gate is a selective day school for girls aged 4 to 18. It was founded in 1891. The school is situated in central London close to the major museums and Hyde Park, and occupies five Victorian buildings adapted for school use. The Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) is housed in an area of the Junior School designed for this age group. The school is an educational trust overseen by a board of governors.

Since the previous inspection, the school has acquired two additional houses for the Junior School, redeveloped both junior and senior libraries, created three additional laboratories and refurbished the Senior School buildings. The management structure has been revised and there have been several appointments including that of chair of governors and new leadership.

The school seeks to offer a well-rounded education to girls in a caring and supportive environment. It aims to enable all girls to achieve their potential, both academic and personal, enjoy a range of extra-curricular activities, and become responsible citizens.
