At QCPS we firmly believe in the importance of embracing all the outdoors has to offer. This is essential not just for our pupils’ physical health, but also for their emotional and mental wellbeing.
The girls lead healthy active lives, with a rich and varied physical education programme that gives everyone the chance to develop competence and confidence. Through competition, at an individual, team and House level, we build character and embed the values of fairness and respect.
QCPS is located just a few minutes from Regent’s Park and, together with the large private garden on Portland Place, we are fortunate to have daily access to wonderful outside space with some excellent facilities. We are delighted to have won the Active Westminster School Sports Award 2020 for our commitment to Sport and PE.
Our commitment to outdoor education, however, extends beyond our wide-ranging sports curriculum. We have developed a comprehensive outdoor education programme, which enables our pupils to explore and understand the natural world around them.
This programme involves regular trips to ‘Forest School’ and includes a range of hands-on outdoor educational activities which have enabled us to win The Woodland Trust’s prestigious Green Tree Schools Award (at bronze, silver and now gold level).
QCPS is also fully committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint as much as possible. Our pupil-led Eco Committee and their initiatives to increase recycling, reduce plastic use and improve air quality helped us win the highly respected Eco-Schools' “Green Flag” Award in 2019 and 2021.
