The Curriculum

Offer a diverse range of GCSE, A-level and BTEC subjects designed to captivate and inspire all students. Teaching values aim to educate both the intellect and the character, coupled with a structured 3-year GCSE program, which provides ample time for reflection and resilience. This approach cultivates creativity and independent thinking, essential for unlocking each student’s full potential.

Games & The Arts

Complementing a rich and diverse academic offering is an equally rich and diverse range of sports and creative arts. Sports is centred around helping students discover their passion and aptitude. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to explore and find their fit – sport for life. Creativity runs throughout the building from an enviable DT lab and Food technology in the basement up to the top floor’s theatre and light flooded Art classrooms.

Pastoral Care

Every staff member, regardless of their role, shares the responsibility for the well-being of each pupil. Providing individual attention to every student, recognising that both educational and pastoral support are integral to the development of children and young adults. The personal tutor group system plays a significant role in this regard. Through regular meetings, each tutor remains a constant guide and mentor throughout a student’s time at Maida Vale School – contributing to the development of their self-esteem and confidence.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The school adopts a discerning approach to admissions, considering not only academic ability but also seeking a spark of interest, engagement, or passion. Education as a shared journey, one where pupils, parents, and the school can work together. An Open-Door policy encourages parents to share thoughts, issues, and concerns, fostering a spirit of collaboration. The result is empowered individuals who have developed their own perspectives, reached their full potential, and are prepared for the challenges of the world.
