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 2017, 89% of girls attained GCSE English and Mathematics at grades 9-4 plus 3 or more other grades A*-C.

At A Level, our results are consistently outstanding, with high numbers of girls progressing to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In 2017 70% 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

Headteacher

Since 2015, 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 wide...

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

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

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
