What the school says...
Lady Margaret School is a comprehensive Church of England school for girls aged 11-18. It is situated on Parsons Green in West London, and serves a diverse local community. It was founded in 1917 and became an Academy in September 2012. The school is extremely successful and over-subscribed. Staff, students and parents work together to develop each individual student within a culture of high expectations and respect. We aim to empower students to achieve high aspirations for themselves within a culture of hard work and respect for everybody.
Our exam results reflect the hard work of our staff and students. In 2015, 74% of girls attained 5A*-C at GCSE including English and Maths, with 41% of grades at A*-A. We were in the top 100 non-selective state schools for students attaining the English Baccalaureate for 2015.
At A Level, our results are consistently outstanding, with high numbers of girls progressing to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In 2015 69% of grades were A*-B. Students at LMS have a very good record of securing offers from top universities ...Read more

Degree in mediaeval history plus later, part time, degree in early modern European history at Birkbeck. Taught history at Rickmansworth School before moving to Grey Coat in 2000 as head of history, then assistant, then deputy head. An excellent training ground for Lady Margaret with which it has much in common. Although only a year into her tenure when we visited, her leadership, innovations and smiley presence were palpable. Parents and girls seem enchanted by her - 'so involved and visible about the school'; 'she speaks so well'; 'look - her door...
Special Education Needs
Our school is small and our Special Educational Needs facilities are therefore limited. Unfortunately,there is no access fo wheelchair users to the listed Georgian buildings. We have three or four girls in each year groups with statements who receive excellent support from the well-qualified learning support assistants. Girls with Special Educational Needs participate in main stream classes and are expected keep up with homework in an academic environment. 10-09
