About the school

Long description: 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.

he IB Diploma is offered to students in Grades 11-12 and builds on the foundations of the MYP, preparing each of our girls for university and for later life. The key foci of thinking critically and international-mindedness are qualities Marymount girls live out on a daily basis and our School is thus the ideal environment for each student to thrive.

Diploma candidates at Marymount study one course from each of six subject groups, three at standard level and three at higher level. Additionally, they complete a 4,000-word Extended Essay, pursue a course in the Theory of Knowledge, and document an individual Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) program of voluntary activities (further information below).

The IB Diploma has gained respect from the world's leading universities, common destinations for Marymount graduates, and higher level courses at the Diploma level are considered equivalent to Advanced Placement (AP) courses by the majority of U.S. colleges and universities, ensuring that we offer every possible opportunity for higher education to each of our students.

Middle Years Programme
The MYP is offered to students in Grades 6 to 10 and is a student-centered program which encourages each of our girls to draw connections between eight subject groups and the world in which she lives. The curriculum is linked together by five areas of interaction, which form a natural bridge between disciplines and offer differing conceptual perspectives. Marymount girls constantly benefit from the added value of this cross-curricular approach, with their learning experiences enriched through, for example, social service or environmental projects in the local community.
The MYP serves as the perfect foundation for the IB Diploma in Grades 11-12. In many cases, MYP courses will introduce girls to creative uses for a broad range of concepts and techniques, which may then be developed and harnessed at the Diploma level. We believe this coherence is integral to the academic success of our girls, attested by the fact that the majority of our students choose to remain at Marymount beyond Grade 10.
