Information

Ethos and education
Marymount International School, London is a small independent Catholic day and boarding school for girls aged 11 to 18. We welcome girls of all faiths, providing a unique environment of cultural exchange and understanding for students from over 40 nationalities.

Students follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme, recognised globally by universities as a benchmark of quality in education. In preparation for the IB Diploma, Marymount teaches the Middle Years Programme (MYP). With more than 30 years’ experience teaching the IB, we are able to offer the Programme with unrivalled expertise. Classes are small and students are stretched and encouraged to develop confidence as independent, creative and critical thinkers. Study programmes, which offer a wide selection of languages and subjects, are tailored to meet the needs of individual students. Marymount is the first school in the UK to have its own, fully equipped Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) designed to facilitate the teaching of computer programming, coding and robotics. Our results are outstanding and our students graduate to the finest universities worldwide.

Location and facilities
Located on a private estate, just 12 miles from central London, Marymount offers modern facilities in a secure suburban setting. The School accommodates approximately 100 boarders and 150 day students, and an emphasis is placed on pastoral care. Facilities include a new Fab Lab with 3D printers, laser cutters and other computer-driven machines, new library, new dining hall, sports hall, science centre, music and art rooms and an auditorium. Boarding students are offered a full range of extracurricular activities, making full use of the attractions of London and the surrounding areas.

History
Marymount was established in 1955 to meet the needs of families in the international business and diplomatic community and is part of an international network of 19 schools founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. The School embraces the RSHM Mission ‘that all may have life’. Students at Marymount embody this philosophy through their education, their social development and their extracurricular life.

Entry requirements
Marymount attracts motivated, hardworking students who have the ability to succeed and contribute to the life of the School. Admission is based on previous school records, teacher recommendations, tests and an interview. The School encourages parents and students to visit so that they may meet some of the teachers and hear about the life at Marymount from other students.

‘We are taught in such a way that every student feels supported, affirmed and motivated.’
