Queen Margaret’s

Escrick, York, YO19 6EU


Established in 1901, QM is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18. You will find us in glorious parkland about six miles south of York. But we are much more than our surroundings, we are more than a school: 
We’re a home from home.
A family of learning and belonging. 
In a truly inspirational setting. 
We are somewhere each and every girl can thrive. 
Where they’ll be happy and healthy. 
Grow their knowledge, skills and confidence. 
And make friends for life. 
Somewhere that’s the bedrock for success. 
Opens up opportunities and possibilities. 
Inspires them to forge their own future. 
And gets them ready for life, whatever their calling.
We nurture girls to fulfil their ambitions. 
To realise their potential. 
To become the best women they can be. 
And give them an amazing start in life. 
Girls do so much better in single-sex education and here we see our pupils engaging enthusiastically in a range of activities – be it in the classroom, on the sports field or at the riding stables, or during social events in the boarding houses. There are no airs and graces, no frills or make-up, just girls getting stuck in, and having fun while they do it. They achieve academically (outstandingly so), they come from a variety of backgrounds and, with an increasing emphasis on the support available we are proud that we are continuing to make a QM education possible for an increasingly diverse range of girls. Our girls have homes in York, Ripon, Thirsk, Newcastle upon Tyne, Inverness, Hong Kong, Madrid, Frankfurt and Bangkok and many board, not because they have to, but because they want to. The girls are the focus of life at QM and are at the heart of everything we do. It’s this focus and an individualistic approach that allows our girls to carve their own path, and flourish as formidable, independent women.
