New loft-style living at Queen Margaret’s

Queen Margaret’s, York undertakes a complete refurbishment of Cloisters boarding house

Over the summer holidays, the team at Queen Margaret’s created light, airy and modern bedrooms at the Cloisters LVI boarding house, with bespoke built in furniture to make the best use of the space. Designed in-house, the rooms are based on American student ‘loft living’, ensuring that girls have a private space within the room. The current LVI girls also helped with the design by choosing the curtain fabrics.

The girls can now enjoy large study spaces, dual purpose drawers also acting as steps up to their beds, stylish vertical radiators and brand new washbasin areas. The corridors and shared spaces have also been transformed with bright colours to complement the features of the building.

The girls are delighted with the new rooms: “They’re fab, so modern and the desk space is great.” 

As the only all-girls’ full boarding school in the North of England, 85% of pupils are full boarders while day boarders have beds available within the school. They are encouraged to stay over on Friday evenings in order to take advantage of House activities.
