We are very proud to announce that The St Marylebone CE School has been awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark re-accreditation. The accreditation process is different from others as it is primarily led by students who have to submit evidence from a range of criteria proving that they are indeed World Class at what they do.
A number of year 9 students were involved this year in the accreditation and they showed a great amount of dedication, hard work and commitment, meeting deadlines to collect and submit their evidence.
Criteria includes being an excellent learner, leader, continuous academic, improvement, community participation and others link here.
It is incredible to see just how engaged, talented and enthusiastic St Marylebone students are both in school and outside. The evidence shows this and this award proves it.
These students will continue working on a video project next year to top off their projects so keep an eye out for this!
St Marylebone hosted the national symposium last year at the sixth form site. More than 100 of our students helped out to plan and deliver with minimal teacher input. Speakers from all walks of life gave fascinating panel discussions to not just our students, but also the 40 schools and 400 students who travelled from all over the country to attend the event.
WCSQM is a charity concerned with developing the skills, competencies and characteristics young people need to thrive in an ever-changing global economy. The charity assesses the pupils, not the school, against a framework of skills, competencies and characteristics that young people need to flourish in an emerging global economy.
Every school UK-wide and internationally can subscribe to the BeWorldClass app which gives students a platform they can use to identify and demonstrate their World Class characteristics. Schools using the app which have a significant student cohort demonstrating World Class skills and competencies can apply for the World Class School Quality Mark accreditation. As part of the assessment, our students were assessed and all passed with flying colours!
We also would like to thank Miranda Perry who leads WCS for this incredibly useful opportunity for reflection.
Well done to Anahi, Cliodhna, Daria, Emilia, Isabel, Jada, Lucia, Natalia, Matilda, Maggie, Paloma & Tara for leading the project for this.
