Our staff love working here. They are passionate about their subjects and helping our pupils; their enthusiasm and enjoyment cuts through this place.

Pastoral

Our tutors are the pupils’ champion, support and critic

Our pastoral support gives time and space to our pupils and it is central to our success. There is a team of pastoral support on offer should your child encounter difficulty.

Co-Education

St Margaret’s is a co-educational school

Co-education at St Margaret’s may be a fairly recent move, but it is one that feels very natural.  Boys will be welcome in all years from September 2022. 

Examination Results

Our aim is to help pupils keep options open

Our small class sizes, dedicated teaching staff and encouragement mean our students make tremendous progress over their examination courses.

Higher Education & Beyond

Students go on to study a broad range of university courses

Whether your child is aiming to be an architect or animator, our university preparation will enable them to find the right option.

Our History

St Margaret’s is one of the oldest independent schools in the country

Our history as a school for orphans of clergymen and the guiding principles of St Margaret have given our School its magical characteristics.

Our Community

Charitable works and volunteering are much loved features of school life

Developing our pupils’ sense of leadership and service is a key part of a St Margaret’s education. Our aim is to both grow the skills needed for a successful life beyond school and have a positive social impact.

COVID-19

We are committed to the continuity of education during the pandemic

“I wanted to thank all the teachers at St Margaret’s for organising the remote learning so quickly. I have heard some of the lessons running and the teachers are doing a fabulous job, so thank you all.”
