Our girls and staff responded magnificently to online learning during the period of lockdown in the Summer Term.
We continued with a full timetable for all year groups, delivered in real time via video-conferencing software and collaborative documents, and we even created special extension courses for our Year 11 and 13 pupils to keep them motivated and enthused after the cancellation of exams.
This video from June 2020 explains more about our Remote Learning provision.
Now that the vast majority of our pupils are physically back at school, we have implemented a series of measures to ensure the safety of girls and staff and minimise the risk of coronavirus infection. A small number of pupils who are unable to return at present due to travel restrictions are continuing to access their lessons remotely. You can read the guidance that was sent to all parents at the start of the Autumn Term here:
Is your School Admissions office open?
Our Admissions office is open daily, Monday to Friday. Our email address is [email protected].
Can I request a prospectus?
We will be posting a personalised prospectus if requested but please note this may take longer than usual to be delivered owing to delays in some areas with postal deliveries. You can view our Main School and Sixth Form Prospectuses by clicking on the links below. Our website and virtual visits will provide you with much of the information you require or alternatively please email [email protected] for further details.
Can I arrange a visit?
In order to minimise risk of spreading the coronavirus, we are unfortunately unable to offer physical tours of the school at present. However, this may change, so do contact us at [email protected] for the latest information.
Will you be changing your dates for 2021 entrance examinations and scholarship tests?
We expect to run a full programme of entrance examinations and scholarship tests next academic year in line with previous years and these dates will be published as soon as they are confirmed.
Will my daughter be able to obtain her visa to start school in September 2021?
If your child needs a visa to attend Queenswood please email us at [email protected] and your query will be referred to our visa specialist. They will be able to deal with queries on an individual basis, providing the most up to date information available from the Home Office and ultimately assisting families through the whole visa application process, as and when necessary.
How are you ensuring children are safe on returning to school?
We appreciate that there are concerns about health and hygiene now that schools have re-opened. Please be reassured that we are following guidance issued by the UK government and extensive additional cleaning and hygiene practices are in place. We will also continue to follow all the UK government’s rules that relate to social distancing and isolation as they evolve. Parents should know that we have a fully staffed and equipped medical centre on our school site with qualified practitioners. If you would like more detail about our Covid-19 health and hygiene protocols, including use of personal protective equipment (PPE), please contact our Admissions team at [email protected].
