Experts in Teaching Girls
Studies show that girls achieve more in single-sex schools.
Our teaching staff are specialists in educating girls. We know that without gender boundaries, girls can be free to take intellectual risks. This in turn builds confidence and creates the necessary space to develop thinking.
There are no enforced gender boundaries within the classroom. Girls can take intellectual risks, ask questions, or make judgements without worrying about ‘looking stupid in front of boys’. They build in confidence at a pace that suits them in a wholly supportive environment. They are able to take the lead and feel confident to do so.
Our classrooms provide an ‘attitudinal space’ – at Queenswood the girls are encouraged to extend their thinking into the empty space which in a co-ed environment would normally be occupied by boys. Our girls literally have more thinking and reasoning space.
