Queen’s College Preparatory School is one of central London’s leading independent day schools for girlsl aged 4 to 11. While our spacious buildings on Portland Place look rather grand from the outside, they are warm and friendly inside. QCPS is a place of creativity, conviviality and cosiness, where each girl can happily play, learn and thrive.

Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

We have always instinctively known that girls can only reach their true potential if they are happy and well supported at home and at school. We know that the emotional wellbeing of children is just as important as their physical health. For this reason outstanding, individualised and proactive pastoral care has always been at the very top of our agenda. We believe that happy children are far more likely to be successful pupils, and happy pupils are far more likely to become contented and prosperous adults. Good mental health allows children to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

Typical Child

We like to say that our ideal pupil is a kind and intellectually curious girl. We are looking for pupils who will benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education and make a positive contribution to the life of the school.

Highly Regarded For

Our connection with Queen’s College, London allows us to offer the ‘best of both worlds’ when it comes to our girls’ options for secondary school. On one hand, we are a ‘Prep’ school in the truest sense of the word, in that we offer outstanding preparation for successful 11+ entry to a wide range of leading day and boarding schools; but we also provide the attractive option of an automatic place at our award-winning senior school, Queen’s College, London for those girls who choose to stay local and avoid the 11+ process.
