Marymount International School
History, location and guiding principles
Marymount International School, located just 12 miles from central London, was established in 1955. It is an independent Catholic day and boarding school for girls aged 11 to 18, and is one of the 19 schools in eight countries founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. Around 100 boarders and 150 day students attend Marymount, and they benefit from top-class pastoral care. The RSHM Mission – ‘that all may have life’ – is fully embraced by Marymount. Girls are welcomed to the School regardless of faith, and a unique environment of cultural diversity and exchange is guaranteed to students from over 40 countries.
In a safe suburban setting, modern facilities are available to all. Amenities include a new Fab Lab, which is essentially a fabrication laboratory which stimulates the teaching of computer programming, robotics and coding. There are also a new library, sports hall, science centre, music and art rooms and an auditorium. Extracurricular activities for boarding students make full use of London’s main attractions.
International Baccalaureate expertise
With more than 30 years’ experience teaching the IB, the Programme is offered with expertise that is difficult to match. Marymount teaches the Middle Years Programme (MYP) to prepare students for the IB Diploma. With a range of languages and subjects, Study programmes are designed to meet the needs of individual students.
Admission is based on previous school reports, teacher recommendations, tests and an interview. Visits to the School by students and parents are encouraged.
‘We are taught in such a way that every student feels supported, affirmed and motivated.’
