Additional Information

Maida Vale School is founded on clearly defined values and these inform everything we do:

We believe that each Pupil should be treated as an individual, inspired and motivated to allow them to fulfil their full potential.


We engender confidence and self-esteem, leading to intellectual risk taking and a love of learning.
We cultivate values of respect, compassion, tolerance and community responsibility in each pupil.


We pursue excellence in all areas of study and exploration.
We take a holistic approach, as we believe that there can be no artificial barriers between a Pupil’s intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual growth.


Our staff work in partnership with both Pupil and Parents to promote his/her success, well-being and happiness. A rich and broad curriculum delivered within a caring and nurturing environment produces confident and happy young people achieving excellent academic results.

Maida Vale School is modern and innovative yet reflects many of the traditions and values established over twenty-five years at our schools.

Whilst the School uses entrance assessments to select its Pupils, we will give equal weighting to interviews, achievement in all areas and school references. We believe that talent and potential should not be wasted. At full capacity Maida Vale School will have a roll of approximately 600 boys and girls aged 11 to 18, offering small classes and tutor groups where Pupils will receive individual attention.

Many senior schools remain firmly modelled on past independent and state grammar school models. Within the Gardener Schools Group, we have successfully shown that a modern approach can bring about change for the better. Adolescents now mature socially and emotionally at a younger age and an appropriate learning environment must reflect this. Our Pupils must leave school as resilient, self-reliant young people who can problem solve creatively and understand group dynamics. These skills and values will equip our Pupils for life in the 21st century.

Maida Vale School will be an energising, demanding and nurturing place to be. We look forward to welcoming you through our doors.

Maida Vale School’s Learning Support Department works closely with pastoral and tutorial staff to identify needs at an early stage and provide the support required to enable each pupil to thrive within the curriculum. Teachers trained in Special Educational Needs will work with pupils internally
but, where appropriate, parents may be referred to external agencies for further support.


As a department, we work by observing children first, then deciding what interventions they might need; we never assume. We will study educational phycologist’s reports if pupils arrive with one, or recommend one is done if needed. Class sizes are a maximum of 22 and often the classes for the some learners who need additional support are of 8-10.


Before you apply to Maida Vale School, it is recommended that you attend an open day and experience a tour of the school. It is not necessary to meet with the SENCo at this point. At the point of registration, please ensure that you attach all supporting documentation such as recent educational psychologist’s reports or EHCPs with your application.
