Queen Margaret's School for Girls

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’re a home from home, a family of learning and belonging. 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. We nurture girls to fulfil their ambitions and give them an amazing start in life.

Girls can apply to earn a Scholarship at Queen Margaret's. The Queen Margaret's Scholarship programme is designed to identify strengths, nurture commitment and resilience, provide excitement and challenge, and to celebrate success. We offer Academic, Art, Choral, Dance, Drama, Music and Sport Scholarships.

Armed Forces Personnel

Queen Margaret's offers generous discounts on boarding fees to supplement the CEA for children of personnel serving in the Armed Forces. 


Our aim is to encourage applications from candidates with as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible, as this enriches our community and is vital in preparing our girls for today’s world.

Means tested bursaries are therefore offered to allow as many girls as possible, who meet our admission criteria, to attend QM.
