International Student Exchange

In addition to organised overseas trips, Queenwood has an active program of student exchanges in which girls studying another language live overseas and attend school in another country for a period of time.

Please note: Specific tours and immersions evolve and change. A program for each year is sent to parents once confirmed. Each year girls are invited to participate in a variety of tours that will allow them to encounter unique and often remote areas of the world. Some of the opportunities offered in recent years are shown below

Language exchanges suit students in Years 10 and 11 who have the maturity to manage life with another family in a foreign country. Exchanges usually occur for 4 weeks in the final term of Year 10. The following exchanges are supported by Queenwood:


Blanche de Castille, France
In 2011, Queenwood commenced a partnership with the College Blanche de Castille near Paris, under which Year 10 students are hosted locally and attend the school to develop their French speaking skills.


St Peter’s School, New Zealand
Year 9 students can apply to go on exchange to St Peters School in New Zealand. Girls wishing to be considered for this program need to write a letter of application and participate in an interview with the Year 9 Coordinator and the Deputy Principal. This exchange provides a unique opportunity for the girls to experience life in a co-educational rural school in New Zealand.


Cheltenham Ladies College, England
In 2015, Queenwood commenced a partnership with the Cheltenham Ladies College in England, under which Year 10 students are hosted locally and attend the school to develop cultural links.


Soshin High School, Japan
Soshin High School, Yokohama is our sister school and Year 10 Queenwood students have an opportunity to study at the school for 3 weeks in January every year.
