Lady Margaret School is a high-achieving all-girls Church of England Academy in Fulham, London. We are consistently in the top 25% of Sixth Forms nationally for the progress our students make from GCSE to A Level and we offer 18 subjects at post-16. We do not offer any vocational qualifications post-16. We have high expectations and aspirations for our students whether they stay with us or join us for their education after GCSEs.
Students in Year 13 typically follow three A Level subjects. Some students have taken opportunity to submit an Extended Project Qualification.

Applying for University through UCAS after you have left Lady Margaret School
Please note that if you are re-taking any examinations as a private candidate at another centre we are unable to provide you with a predicted grade for that subject.
Register for UCAS Apply 2024 and complete the application form. You need to request to link your application to Lady Margaret School by entering the buzzword, which for Apply 2023 is “goodlyheritage” (all lower case). Then we have to “accept” your request. It may take us 3 weeks to write and upload a reference so you need to be organised and factor in this time! Please adhere to the cohort deadlines above.
You should continue to use Unifrog to research university courses and for helping you to draft your personal statement. You may wish to send your final draft of the personal statement via Unifrog to the most relevant Head of Department for feedback – please email them first if you wish to do so. Access your account at www.unifrog.org
Please email Miss Walton to confirm you have submitted your UCAS application via Apply 2024. Attach the following to the email:
- Document 1 – a download of your completed UCAS form
- Document 2 ‘UCAS Application Cover Sheet’, listing your subject choice/s, institutions to which you are applying and the grade requirements for each course
- Document 3 ‘Supporting Evidence for your UCAS Reference’, including gap year plans, any relevant work experience or updates from 2023 if you are re-applying. This should not duplicate information in your personal statement. You can provide any updated contextual information that should be added to your reference.
Please attach a digital copy of the above three documents to your Unifrog Student Locker as well. Document 2 and Document 3 can be completed digitally – please locate and download them from the UCAS section on the Sixth Form Google Classroom.
This must be done by Friday 10 November 2023 if you want to meet the 25 January 2024 deadline for online applications to UCAS, but earlier the better!
If you wish, you can request an appointment to come in and see Miss Walton to discuss your UCAS application and to check your reference – if you wish to do so, please contact Miss Walton to arrange a convenient time.
And don’t forget to join LMX, the school’s alumnae association. You can contact Old Girls who have studied at the institutions you are considering and benefit from their insight and advice.
