Introduction

Marymount International School London is an International Baccalaureate World School and has a strong academic tradition. Authorized as an IB school in 1979, Marymount was the first all-girls school in the UK to adopt the Diploma Programme. The Middle Years Programme was introduced in 1997. This internationally acclaimed programme is recognised globally by universities as a benchmark of quality in education.

With more than 30 years' experience teaching the IB, we are in the privileged position of offering the Diploma Programme with unrivalled expertise. With small classes and a stimulating teaching environment students are stretched and encouraged to develop confidence as independent, critical thinkers.

The very nature of our School gives every girl the optimal environment to succeed academically. Our pedagogy is tailored to our international, all-girls demography, a model in place since Marymount was founded over fifty years ago. Furthermore, students may choose a program tailored to their specific needs, affording both the strongest combination of subjects and levels, and a choice from seven languages including Chinese and Japanese. Finally, despite impressive exam results year-on-year, we see exams as a by-product of something much more important: allowing every Marymount girl to blossom through a holistic, challenging, and above all enjoyable learning process.

The underlying philosophy of the IB is closely aligned to our own, and thus we are uniquely positioned to offer each girl an education of outstanding quality enhanced by our commitment to instilling a lifelong love of learning.

 “We are taught in such a way that every student feels supported, affirmed and motivated to achieve the highest standards possible. Small class sizes mean that the level of work studied is flexible and stimulating. In this way we are well prepared for the challenges of the IB course.” -Ellen (USA) Grade 10
