Marylebone Association - Families Report 2015

Marylebone Association - Families Report 2015

I am delighted to report that Marylebone Boys' School is now both open and thriving. The school's motto is 'studio et industria', which can be translated as 'through application and hard work'. This sums up how the 120 Year 7 boys, teachers, support staff, governors and parents have approached the challenges the school has faced this year. The original aim was to offer local families with boys an option of an academically rigorous education, with high expectations. Whilst our temporary site for the school just off Kilburn High Road might not be as local as we would have liked we have finally secured a permanent home for the school in Paddington.

Families - Six Month Report

Families - Six Month Report

Over the past few months a lot has happened at Marylebone Boys’ School. Most importantly we opened as planned on the 3rd September, albeit in a temporary yet modern purpose-built education site in Priory Park Road, Kilburn. We continue to work with both the Education Funding Agency and Westminster City Council on a permanent Marylebone site and we hope to make an announcement about this early in 2015.

The school was officially opened on 17th September by Mark Field MP, with the Mayors of Brent and Westminster, and Philippa Roe, the Leader of Westminster Council, also in attendance. We shared our launch day with the new educational charity 'Never Such Innocence' (NSI). The charity is dedicated to educating young people about the First World War, its impact and legacy. The charity takes its name from a line in Philip Larkin’s famous poem MCMXIV, which reflects on the changes caused by the First World War. A national poetry and art competition for secondary schools was launched and forms part of NSI’s wider initiative to educate children nationally about the terrific magnitude of the Great War which has either directly or indirectly impacted the lives of almost every person in UK’s multicultural society.

Richard Ardron the Headteacher has brilliantly begun implementing the Marylebone Boys’ School vision and making it a reality. The school’s motto is 'studio et industria', which can be translated as 'through application and hard work'. This is certainly what both the boys and the teachers are currently doing. The school is growing from strength to strength.

Three well attended Open Days were held at the school in October. With the admission deadline now passed we are expecting to be three times oversubscribed again. But remember the over-subscription 'seed' point for school like last year remains the old Marylebone Town Hall. We look forward to the day that our school uniforms become a familiar part of the local community.
