Professional Memberships

The Headmistress of Queen's College Prep is a member of IAPS, which means the school has been awarded a prestigious kitemark of quality.

The Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) is the membership association for head teachers of leading prep schools throughout the world.

IAPS exists to support head teachers as they strive to deliver excellent standards of education and care. It aims to advise and support members; promote and defend the sector and to inspire and define excellence.

All IAPS schools have to meet strict standards before they can be accredited into membership and must continue to pass regular inspections.

You can be assured that the school is among the most prestigious prep schools in the world, with links to an international association that allows its members to share best practice, take advantage of continuing professional development courses and benefit from excellent links with senior independent schools.

Queen's College Prep is also a member of the Girls' School Association, as the Preparatory School of Queen's College, London.

The Girls’ Schools Association represents the heads of many of the top performing day and boarding schools in the UK independent schools sector.

Many of the GSA schools were, like Queen's College, founded in the nineteenth century when a national movement to provide better education for girls and women gathered momentum. Campaigners founded new schools in which girls studied similar subjects to boys – a far cry from the superficial curriculum they had previously been given.

The GSA encourages high standards of education for girls and promotes the benefits of being taught in a largely girls-only environment. The GSA aims to inform and influence national educational debate and provides members and their staff with professional development courses, conferences, advice and opportunities to debate and share best practice.
