At Queen Margaret’s girls study a wide range of subjects. We believe that this breadth of education is essential if wise and informed choices are to be made for GCSEs and beyond. It does mean that the students are very busy and academic organisation is central to success. Tutors help by monitoring the workloads of their tutees and giving advice on organisation.
