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.

I would like to thank Westminster City Council for its continued support over the past 24 months or so, often involving sensitive and confidential discussions to help the Education Funding Agency identify a site that meets both our needs as well as dovetailing with the overall priorities and strategies of the City of Westminster. The school is certainly proving popular. Last year we were three times oversubscribed and this year we have been four times oversubscribed and have large waiting lists for both years. The school has enjoyed sporting success, triumphing in the Westminster Schools' table tennis tournament and winning several events at the Westminster swimming gala. And more recently Marylebone Boys' School beat fellow boys' school, Westminster City 5-1 on the football field. I have high hopes for cricketing success too!
