A vibrant, stimulating learning environment

The Sixth Form at Lady Margaret School aims to give each student an excellent education as well as the opportunity to grow as a member of a strong community and to take part in many different extra-curricular and enrichment activities.  Our Sixth Form curriculum focuses on A Levels, with excellent teaching across all departments.  A range of new subjects, not available at GCSE, are on offer at A Level in the Sixth Form: Economics, History of Art, Politics, Psychology and Sociology.  Students benefit from the individual attention given to them not only in lessons, but also outside the classroom.  Students in the Sixth Form have the use of a bespoke building; The Olivier Centre opened by the Bishop of Kensington in November 2010. Here they have facilities for formal and informal study, kitchen facilities and music practice rooms. 

We are very proud of our students' achievements; every year it is wonderful to see our girls move on to study at the many prestigious universities and courses when they complete their studies at LMS.

Independent learning
The results at A Level in recent years have been outstanding across all subjects. One of the reasons for this is that high expectations are set from the beginning of Year 12 and girls quickly develop as independent learners. The teachers know their students well and they are able to bring out their potential and guide them to appropriate further education courses. Each year a number of girls gain places at Oxford, Cambridge and other prestigious universities as well as at Art and Design colleges.  Students are also successful in securing places in Medicine and Dentistry.

The Extended Project Qualification is also offered to those students who are coping well with their A level subjects. This qualification equates to half an A Level and requires a significant commitment to independent study.

Leadership roles
However, being in the Sixth Form is not just about hard work; there are many opportunities for fun: house competitions, charity events, extra-curricular activities and clubs. Girls in the Sixth Form are able to organise and run a wide range of clubs.

We see our students flourish as they take on extra responsibility in the Sixth Form: mentoring younger students, acting as hosts and guides on numerous school occasions, interviewing new members of staff, planning events, directing plays and running the Christian Union. In Year 12, over half the year group write letters of application for the Senior Order, our senior team of prefects who work closely with the senior staff of the school to ensure that the school runs smoothly.

Lady Margaret School is a Church of England school that gained Academy status in September 2012. All Sixth Formers and their parents are expected to support the Christian ethos of the school. Students and staff attend assemblies and church services and many of the senior girls play an important role in these acts of worship. However, it remains an inclusive school and girls from other faiths or those who have no religious beliefs at all are welcomed.

Stimulating environment

Although a large majority of LMS students stay on, some do not. With the expanded Sixth Form provision created in 2010 this means that there are plenty of new faces in the Sixth Form each year. New comers can we assured of a warm welcome and should not be concerned that friendship cliques are already established.

We look forward to welcoming you. Please make a note of our open days in the Autumn Term when you can meet staff and classmates.
