Queen Margaret’s School for Girls

Girls only Senior School in York, North Yorkshire

Established in 1901, QM is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18. You will find us in glorious parkland six miles south of York, but we are much more than our surroundings, we are more than a school. Our girls engage enthusiastically in a range of activities - no airs and graces, no frills or make-up, just girls getting stuck in, and having fun.
