Why Queen Margaret College?

An all girls advantage

We believe in tailoring education for girls. That means championing their learning needs, building resilience, supporting leadership and academic success.

Students are confident, leading to higher academic outcomes. In a single-sex environment, girls feel free to take risks academically and do not feel they have limits on their achievements.

Adventurous learning

We invite every student to think critically, speak up and challenge the status quo.

We celebrate success and learn from failure to lay the foundations for happy, compassionate and determined young women.

Preparing girls for the future

We are building confident, principled women who make a difference in the modern world, through a holistic approach to education and a focus on wellbeing and community.

Our modern mission is to provide our students with the motivation, self-belief and resilience to disrupt gender bias. To choose their pathway without barriers.
