Principal's Welcome

Mrs Jo Cameron, BScHons, PGCE, Principal

I am privileged to be Principal of this wonderful school and I am passionate about educating girls in a positive, supportive and challenging environment. Queenswood is a community where girls achieve all that they dream of and more. The opportunities for growth and development for boarders and day girls are extensive, exciting and fun. Most importantly, Queenswood girls are happy – and happy girls are successful girls.

There is no doubt that Queenswood girls excel academically. The grades they achieve at GCSE are consistently around one grade higher in every subject than would be expected at an average independent school. Or, as the Good Schools Guide puts it, Queenswood is ‘at the pinnacle of Hertfordshire’s value-added tables’. This is something of which we are immensely proud. Likewise, they thrive in our truly progressive Sixth Form, and proceed to a wide range of prestigious courses at top Universities.

In the future, our girls will be leaders in their chosen fields. They will need to be able to try, and fail, and try again with a positive attitude. These are qualities that Queenswood girls develop through their time here and take with them for the rest of their lives.

This is a dynamic learning community where the girls’ interests, happiness and wellbeing are the first consideration at all times. Our girls are at the heart of everything we do, and we know that they feel valued and enriched by the experiences they share here.

Queenswood is an extraordinary place with extraordinary people; I invite you to visit our beautiful site and experience it for yourselves. It would be our privilege to educate your daughters here.
