What says..

We toured the school and witnessed class after class of girls, head down or in earnest collaboration - evidence of the head's claims that 'girls don't have to be ashamed of working hard here...  they are ambitious and want to do well - even the naughty ones!'  We were delighted by some of the most interesting, careful and creative work in painting and drawing we've seen anywhere. Lively textiles, food tech lab and a sizeable DT workshop  testify to the emphasis placed on head and hand collaboration here...

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

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2015, Ms Elisabeth Stevenson MA PGCE, previously deputy head at Grey Coat Hospital. Degree in medieval 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 is open, it always is - that speaks volumes' - and in fact, both doors into her room - to the atrium and to the garden - were...

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
