Impact Statement

This year, Queen's College joined the Southwark Schools’ Learning Partnership (SSLP), a collaboration between local schools based in, and around, the London Borough of Southwark. Queen’s is the sixteenth school, and fourth Independent, to join. We are an Affiliate Member simply because of our location, north rather than south of the river, and have all the benefits of full membership.

The Partnership offers a wide range of events at both a staff and pupil level. Ten Pupils from SSLP schools visited Queen's in November to receive practice Oxbridge interviews, and one pupil attend our Greek club on Wednesdays; a number we are hoping will increase as our partnership matures. One of our staff has attended a Partnership mental health day, a Socratic Club Lecture is being hosted by Queen's on Jan 31st (we have received 12 RSVPs from affiliate staff members and students) and a Greek & Latin Reading Competition on March 13th. Our Senior pupils are able to attend events independently, but events for lower years will be organised with accompaniment by members of staff in due course.

Pupils at St Vincent's Catholic School continue to visit Queen's for regular art and science workshops and maths events (92 pupils between February and December 2018). Our I Senior students have also been involved in a Volunteering and Work Experience programme every Wednesday afternoon since September 2018, three of whom are supporting students and staff at St Vincent’s in lessons (in classes of approximately 28 pupils).

Both Queen's College London and Queen's College Preparatory School offer means-tested bursaries to support children who have the potential for a Queen’s education, but whose parents would not be able to afford the fees either wholly or in part without unacceptable hardship.  The amount of support varies depending on circumstances, from 10% of fees up to 100%.  There is also a small Hardship Fund, used to help fund items not covered by 100% Bursaries.

QCL (but not QCPS) also offers scholarships to pupils who have shown particular academic aptitude or talent, including in Art  Music and the Sciences.  The percentage of fee remission is much lower than for a bursary - generally a maximum of half a term's fees, and usually much less.
