Guardians etc has worked in partnership with Queen’s College for the past six years and our experience leaves us in no doubt that the school provides an excellent education which nurtures intellectual curiosity, is challenging and fun, balancing academic excellence with fulfilment of individual potential in the arts, sport and extra-curricular activities. It ensures that each student performs to their potential, while developing and nurturing the individual. We have always been impressed with how the teaching and boarding staff work closely together, teaching respect and tolerance for the whole school community. However, we believe the ‘special ingredient’ at Queen’s College is the very individual pastoral care and guidance shown to each student, which is simply outstanding.
Amanda McHale, guardians etc
I have a long relationship with Queen’s as my daughters were both boarders for a number of years. My contact with the school continues as a guardian to International students. I cannot fault the welcoming atmosphere and assistance we are given with our students by both academic and house staff… I hope that we continue to work with Queen’s and look after their students for many years to come.
Alison Warne, Guardianship Manager, Guardians UK
I remember my time at Queen's with fondness and as the years pass I find myself appreciating more and more the time I spent there, not just the formal education but perhaps more importantly the environment itself and the many extra curricular activities I was exposed to; the music and drama above all, which still give me great pleasure.
Simon Wilkie, Old Queenian
Our association with Queen's College stretches back over 23 years to when my mother ran Quest Guardians and we have always found the culture throughout the staff team friendly and supportive. This extends to both helping us organise our regular visits and routine arrangements for the international students, and also to when unforeseen circumstances arise, both pastoral and educational, when it is so beneficial to a student to have a strong partnership and good communications between school, guardianship agency and parents.
Chris Michelmore, Director, Quest Guardians Ltd
 "My Son started at Queen’s and he absolutely loves his new life. There seems to be a fair balance between academia, fun and sports. My son has settled unexpectedly well and communication with him and all staff is on point. I must say, I am happy knowing that Son is happy. If I had this choice again, it would be Queen’s College all the way.”

We will be forever grateful for the incredible pastoral care our son has received. He is genuinely happy to be at school and that is all down to the amazing support he has received.”
