About More House School
More House School is an independent school based in Kensington and Chelsea in London for girls aged 11-18. It is a Roman Catholic 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. The school expanded steadily over the years and in 1971 it moved to its present home in Pont Street, Knightsbridge. A lay charitable trust currently manages More House School.

Independent Schools Inspectorate
“The personal development of pupils is excellent. They reflect exceptionally well on spiritual matters concerning the non-material aspects of life, and demonstrate their concern for justice and their sensitivity to the needs of others through their service within the school community and their generous charitable giving. Their social development is extremely strong and they collaborate very well. The sixth-form mentoring system for girls who join the school in Year 7 works particularly well and they appreciate the continuation of this through the vertical house structure.”
