What says..

Wide range of academic ability. As one parent put it, ‘There are less intellectually confident girls here who are nurtured, but there are also some very clever girls, whose parents have chosen the school because it is Catholic.’  One mother commented, ‘At parents’ evening, the teachers always highlight the girls’ strengths and are keen to build on these, rather than just dwelling on what they can’t do. It boosts the girls’ confidence.’ Creative and performing arts at the heart of the school. Deserves its artistic reputation and currently boasts…

What the school says...

More House School is a Catholic school that welcomes girls of all faiths. With the benefit of small classes, the particular talents of every girl are nurtured and developed by dedicated teachers. We are proud of the consistent successes of our pupils in GCSE and A-level examinations. A full programme of physical education is part of every girl's curriculum. Good athletes have been chosen to represent the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in the London mini-marathon and there is a sports day each year. The extracurricular programme is extremely rich - clubs include: art, choir, orchestra, photography, fencing, drama, and many more. Girls also become involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, World Challenge, choir tour, drama production, operas, and more. ...Read more

Head

Since April 2021, Faith Hagerty, previously deputy head at St Augustine’s Priory, Ealing, where she worked for 14 years. Brought up in West London, where she attended a Catholic convent before completing her senior school years at The Arts Educational School, followed by A levels at Notting Hill and Ealing High School.

Special Education Needs

The majority of learning needs are accommodated within the classroom by the subject teacher. As classes are smaller than in many independent schools, a high level of individual support can be provided. Where necessary, based on evidenced need, learning support may be provided outside classes, on an individual or small group basis. Such support will have a specific focus, for example, reading fluency, reading comprehension, spelling, writing. We always view girls holistically taking into account their interests, aspirations and emotions in supporting them. Girls with a range of special educational needs and difficulties have progressed to university and we encourage all pupils to aim high and achieve their best. We have an excellent support network based around the Form Tutor and our PSHE programme.
