Queen's College, London is a remarkable school with an extraordinary history.
Founded in 1848 and awarded a Royal Charter by Queen Victoria in 1853, Queen’s became the first school in the UK to award academic qualifications to women. Following this early royal patronage by Queen Victoria, our Patron has always been a queen; our most recent patron was the late Queen Elizabeth II.
