Boarding, whether full-time or on a flexible basis, is an integral part of Queen Mary’s life and adds to the school’s ‘home from home’ atmosphere. In a supportive environment girls acquire the inter-personal skills needed for living with others, gaining in confidence and maturity whilst learning to become more self-reliant and independent. Boarding provides an invaluable preparation for future life.
The accommodation for boarders is within the main school building. Living and working in one building creates a real sense of community where important values such as good manners, tolerance and consideration for others are developed.
