Queen Mary’s is a thriving day and boarding school welcoming girls from 4-16 years old and boys in the younger year groups set in 40 acres of beautiful grounds between Ripon and Thirsk just minutes from the A1(M). Thanks to a unique combination of a small community, truly personalised learning, a relentless focus on how children learn best and a determination to create magical childhood memories, your child will blossom here.
Even in national lockdown, pupils’ studies continue and they are able to interact with their teachers and peers every day to achieve that all important social contact. Queen Mary’s pupils experience a Home Learning Programme providing a rich and enjoyable education delivering engaging and differentiated learning opportunities, pastoral care and individual support with virtual lessons, prayers, tutor time and extra-curricular activities including Music, Speech and Drama and virtual events.
Queen Mary’s is one of the few remaining schools where the gift of a traditional childhood is as equally prized as academic excellence; where river swimming sits comfortably alongside coding. The stimulating and varied curriculum is delivered by a dedicated team of staff who bring out the best in each child. Recent results saw 49% of entries awarded 8-9s (the equivalent of an A* or A**) and many girls move on to prestigious sixth forms and universities including Oxbridge.
In offering a vibrant range of opportunities each child can make their own story. Whether it is performing on stage or taking part in the UK Mathematics Trust events, playing on the new floodlit astro-pitch or riding at the award-winning Queen Mary’s stables, we will help your child find out where their passion lies.
Queen Mary’s offers flexible boarding and provides a minibus service across the region.
We would be delighted to welcome you to an Open Morning or we can offer an individual visit on a date to suit you.
