Marymount is a small, independent Catholic day and boarding school for girls aged 11 to 18, fully committed to the academic, emotional, spiritual, and social development of its students.
Established in 1955 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM), to meet the needs of families in the international business and diplomatic community, we embrace and embody the RSHM Mission “that all may have life”. We welcome girls of all nationalities and religious traditions, providing a unique environment of cultural exchange and understanding.
In 1979 we were the first girls' school in the United Kingdom to adopt the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme. This was a daring decision reflecting remarkable educational foresight thus enabling us to meet the needs of our students: empowering them to become independent, critical thinkers and active, lifelong learners. The pursuit of knowledge twinned with a keen sense of social justice reflects the IB philosophy and Catholic values at the very heart of our Community. Our students graduate to the finest universities in the world and stand out as confident, compassionate and courageous thinkers who are the leaders of tomorrow.
In preparation for the IB Diploma, Marymount teaches the Middle Years Program (MYP) which has a holistic structure fostering creativity, rigorous self-assessment and personal development.
Marymount London is a member of the Girls' School Association, the Boarding Schools Association and the Independent Schools Council. It is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools & Colleges (USA) and the Council of International Schools and inspected in the UK by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).
Our beautiful campus sits on an exclusive private estate, in the heart of the idyllic Surrey countryside yet only a stone’s throw from central London.
