Marymount International School is an independent Catholic day and boarding school - welcoming girls of all faiths, aged 11-18.
A small school with 250 pupils (of which 80 are boarders), Marymount offers a supportive, nurturing environment with small classes and bespoke study programmes. With a student-teacher ratio of 5:1, teaching is relevant and flexible, keeping students highly motivated.
Marymount adopted the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 1979. The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is taught as the best preparation possible for the Diploma. This stretches students without the need for incessant testing allowing them to develop inquiring, critical minds and to become confident, creative, independent thinkers.
Marymount was the first School in the UK to install its own, fully equipped Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) designed to facilitate the teaching of computer programming, coding and robotics. This has resulted in a rigorous, inter-disciplinary curriculum, in support of the STEM subjects.
With over 40 nationalities in the School, students are prepared for life in a global setting and develop a cultural fluency so sought after by today's employers.
The largest national group is British and tuition is in English; however, additional languages taught include Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin (Russian and Arabic when required) for native speakers.
The School consistently delivers excellent academic results. In 2017, 25% of graduates achieved 40 points and above (which is higher than A*A*A*A* at A-levels) and over 50% graduated with a Bilingual Diploma. Students regularly achieve a full score of 45 points.
Students gain places at top universities worldwide including Ivy League in the USA and Oxbridge. In 2017, 87% of students studying in the UK, gained places at Russell Group Universities.
Set in a secure, leafy campus, school buses cover routes from amongst others Sloane Square, South Kensington, Fulham, Putney, Wimbledon and Richmond.
