The Good Schools Guide 2013 described Queenswood as "a girls' school to which others should aspire."
As Queenswood is a Methodist school, all girls are required to attend chapel services. Special services are held to welcome new girls and farewell upper sixth leavers.
The tutor system is a key part of the school's pastoral care. Girls are organised into small groups and assigned to a tutor or their housemistress.
Girls in years 7 and 8 belong to Stamp House, which accommodates up to 45 boarders.
In year 7, girls are randomly allocated to one of the four houses but will only switch when they enter year 9.
- Clapham North
- Clapham South
The houses have a mixture of boarding and day girls to allow for integration. The boarding programme is generally flexible and accommodates part-time boarders. Day girls may sleep over on an ad hoc basis or on weekdays only.
Each house is supervised by a housemistress and a boarding assistant. Stamp House has 12 tutors and three full-time residential staff.
