Welcome to our website which has been constructed to enable you to gain a glimpse of More House. We offer an academic education to girls from the age of 11 to 18. We are lucky to be in the heart of London which is easily accessible from a wide area. More House was founded by the Canonesses of St Augustine at the request of a group of parents determined to send their daughters to a Catholic London Day School. We now welcome girls of all faiths or none. Involvement of parents has always been essential to the culture at More House. Parents always form part of the make up of the Governing body.

With the benefit of small classes, the particular talents of every girl are nurtured and developed by dedicated teachers. We are inspired by Thomas More who saw mankind as a fellowship. More House remains a broad-based Catholic School with an underlying sense of ethics that reaches out in a spirit of genuine engagement to embrace other communities.

Our great strength lies in our cultural mix, which is a true reflection of the multi-cultural society we live in. This happy and secure environment allows the girls to excel academically and move on to the next stage of their lives with confidence and a sense of responsibility.

The Aims of the School

More House School provides an environment where pupils and Staff are valued and supported as individuals and where their rights and dignity are maintained. Our School fosters an ethos of spiritual growth, not only for those within the Roman Catholic Church but also for those who adhere to other Christian traditions and other faiths. We develop the spiritual, academic and cultural potential of each pupil to the full at every stage of her school career in such a way that this development will continue throughout her life. The School encourages intellectual curiosity and pride in achievement. We expect all the members of our School community to act with integrity, to display a concern for justice and to be sensitive to the needs of other people.

The History of the School

More House School opened in 1953 when a group of Catholic parents asked the Canonesses of St Augustine to open a London Day school for their daughters. Named for St Thomas More, the Tudor scholar who was at once philosopher, theologian, mathematician, writer, musician and politician and who died 'the King's good servant, but God's good servant first', the School expanded steadily over the years and in 1971 it moved to its present home in Pont Street, Knightsbridge and also passed into lay management and leadership. More House School is presently managed by a lay charitable trust.



Mr Carlysle has announced his retirement and will be leaving More House in April 2014. He hands over the Headship to our Deputy Head Mrs Leach who has been at More House since 1998.
