Queen’s College Centre Français

Queen’s College Centre Français

Established in 1843, Queen's is a co-educational independent school with a rich history and a vibrant present. We cater to pupils aged 1-18, providing a nurturing and stimulating environment across our Nursery, Prep School, and Senior School. All children and staff work closely together, fostering a sense of community and ensuring a smooth transition between different stages.

Queen’s Centre Français (Reception – Year 6) is led by dedicated teachers, teaching assistants and EAL staff alongside the French Tutors. This department ensures your child can continue their French academic studies while immersing themselves in the vibrant life at Queen’s. This allows them to maintain their French curriculum alongside full immersion in our normal timetable and co-curricular offer. We also offer the Queen’s Centre Français Plus to pupils in Years 7-13, with access to the CNED tutors and EAL as required. These lessons will take place by withdrawal from certain lessons and will be tailored to each individual child.

At Queen’s, we believe in fostering a sense of belonging and celebrating diversity. We are confident that your children will thrive in our warm and welcoming environment, forming lasting friendships and developing a lifelong love of learning.

Flexible Wraparound Care

We understand the demands of modern family life, and we offer a range of flexible wrap-around care options to support your busy schedule. Take advantage of our breakfast clubs (7:30-8:00 am), ensuring your child starts the day with a nutritious meal and arrives at school energised. After school, our exciting range of co-curricular clubs allows your child to pursue specific interests, develop new skills, and socialise with classmates in a fun and engaging environment. Additionally, late care (5:40-7:30pm) with dinner is available, providing a safe and supervised space for your child until you can pick them up after work.

A Diverse and Enriching Experience

We offer a comprehensive curriculum that goes beyond traditional subjects. Our pupils benefit from a strong focus on outdoor education, developing a connection with nature and fostering a sense of adventure. We also have a dedicated food and nutrition program, promoting healthy eating habits and a greater understanding of where our food comes from. Additionally, a variety of sporting opportunities, from traditional team sports to individual pursuits, cater to diverse interests and help develop teamwork, resilience, and a healthy lifestyle. Finally, our thriving performing arts programme allows students to express their creativity, explore their talents, and gain confidence through drama, music, and dance.

Our highly qualified and experienced staff are passionate about nurturing young minds. They deliver an engaging and exciting curriculum that treats each child as an individual and ensures every child can discover and develop their unique talents.

We understand the challenges of moving to a new country, and we’re here to support your family every step of the way. Queen’s is known as the family school of choice in the South West, and we have extensive experience welcoming families from all over the world.
