About Lady Margaret School
Lady Margaret School is a Church of England academy for girls aged 11-18 situated on Parsons Green in West London. Established in September 1917, there are currently 775 girls on roll, of whom 179 are in the Sixth Form. It is an outstandingly successful school in welcoming girls of all academic abilities and ensuring that they achieve their full potential.
Its success is based on a culture of high expectations and aspirations, excellent standards of teaching and a strong commitment to the Christian ethos. However, it remains an inclusive school and girls from other faiths or those who have no religious beliefs at all are welcomed.

Students at LMS have an excellent record of securing offers from top universities.
