What says..

Dance, drama and music are outstanding and production values are high. 'The girls take huge pride in their performances,' we were told, 'even if not everyone can take part. It is inspirational.' The inspiration is further fuelled by the innovative and outstanding three storey building that incorporates the visual and performing arts space, with dance studio and gym in the basement. It is perhaps not surprising, then, that sport has a lower profile. That is not to say that there are not…

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2014, Ms Kathryn Pugh MA (Cantab) PGCE NPQH (mid 30s). A Cambridge graduate with first class honours in English, she joined St Marylebone in 2005 as an English teacher and learning co-ordinator, and was promoted to assistant head in 2008, before succeeding the long-serving and legendary Elizabeth Phillips OBE. This is only the second school she has worked at. She arrived here after cutting her teeth (as she puts it) at Riddlesdown Collegiate, a large co-ed comprehensive in Surrey, where she taught English and drama. Straight after leaving Cambridge she spent four years working in business and media, and worked in theatre and communication for 18 months in Malawi, as well as working for the Teacher Support Network, an educational charity.

Special Education Needs

The St Marylebone School is committed to providing an inclusive education for all of its students with support provided by the SEN, EAL and Inclusion departments. Students are assessed upon entry and we aim to ensure that all students' needs are identified and catered for as appropriate. SEN staff play a key role in providing support to SEN students during their transition to secondary school. It is the school's aim that the majority of students will be supported within mainstream lessons. This approach focuses on teachers working in partnership with subject specialists in order to shape inclusive environments that cater both to individual need, as well as for diversity of need in the classroom. The SEN department provides additional support outside of the curriculum through activities such as homework club and lunchtime clubs.
