Teachers at Marymount are committed to helping girls become fully-rounded and self-confident young women during their time at the school.
Academic excellence and the pursuit of learning for its own sake are highly prized, while a strong sense of social justice reflects the Christian values that the school’s philosophy centres on.
An IB school since 1979, Marymount girls progress through the Middle Years Program (MYP) to the IB Diploma with outstanding results.
More than 30 years of experience with the IB curriculum gives the teaching staff unrivalled expertise, while small classes, outstanding facilities and a high degree of personalisation in the curriculum contribute to helping each girl succeed to their very fullest potential.
In 2013, just over 20% of Marymount IB Diploma candidates received a score of 40 points or higher, placing them in the top 4% worldwide.
Students are well prepared for life beyond school, with a majority going on to prestigious universities in the UK and abroad.
A full time College & University Counsellor and an Oxford pre-admission programme support girls in choosing their future studies.
To complement the demanding academic curriculum, Marymount girls have a broad choice of clubs, activities and sports that allow students to develop teamwork and self-confidence as well as specific skills.
Pastoral care is also an important component of the Marymount education, and the emotional growth, happiness and sense of well-being of each student is closely monitored.
Pupils who choose to board enjoy a family atmosphere in one of the four boarding houses, as well as the supervision of experienced staff dedicated to their care.
This leads to a strong sense of community within the school, and allows students to feel at home during their time at Marymount.
