Lady Margaret School is a comprehensive Church of England school for girls aged 11-18. It is situated on Parsons Green in West London, and serves a diverse local community. It was founded in 1917 and became an Academy in September 2012. The school is extremely successful and over-subscribed. Staff, students and parents work together to develop each individual student within a culture of high expectations and respect. We aim to empower students to achieve high aspirations for themselves within a culture of hard work and respect for everybody.
Our exam results reflect the hard work of our staff and students. In 2018, 88% of our girls attained GCSE English and Mathematics at grades 9-4. Our Progress 8 score for 2018 is 1.03, which puts us in the top 50 schools in the country for this performance measure. At A Level, our results are consistently outstanding, with high numbers of girls progressing to a wide range of Higher Education courses. In 2018 69% of grades were A*-B. Students at LMS have a very good record of securing offers from top universities.
Following our centenary year, we look forward to building on this success. We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic professional to lead our Geography Department from September 2019 for a fixed term of 12 months. The successful candidate will be a well-qualified and experienced Teacher of Geography who is ready to take on a key leadership role, or an existing Head of Department who is seeking a new challenge.
As a member of our staff community you will have the chance to work with a strong staff team to build on the current successes of the school as we move forward into the next stage of our development.
