Queens College London is a Liberal school, founded in 1848 by Frederick Denison Maurice, professor of English Literature and History at King’s College London and Christian Socialist thinker. His ambition was to provide a means by which girls could gain a serious education, and Queen’s was the first institution in Great Britain where they could study for and gain academic qualifications. Nowadays, Queen’s occupies four large houses on Harley Street, they are academically selective, and they place great importance on the nurture and development of the talents of each individual girl. This is not a school to force anyone into a mould, and they are very proud of that.
The small number of pupils allows for small classes and close relations between the well qualified staff and pupils, but also large enough to be able to offer a wide range of subjects and subject combinations.
