St. Margaret's School, Bushey review

Founded in 1749, St. Margaret's School in Bushey is a prestigious and historically significant school known for its focus on small class sizes. Since January 2020, the school has been transitioning from an all-girls school to a coeducational institution, admitting boys from the nursery to Year 2. By September 2022, boys were gradually being admitted across all year groups. Some parents may have initially worried that their sons would become a minority group, but according to feedback from students who joined in 2022, each year group has a considerable number of male students, including many local boys.

St. Margaret's School, Bushey Introduction

A Preferred Choice for London Immigrants

St. Margaret's School's close proximity to central London makes it a preferred choice for many Hong Kong immigrant families as their first-choice school. The school is conveniently accessible via the London Overground Watford DC Line, which takes students directly to Euston station, followed by a short 10-minute walk to the school. For full-boarding students, parents visiting or students going out to explore London during weekends find the location highly convenient. Beyond its historical significance, London boasts numerous museums, such as the National Maritime Museum, National Gallery, and Tate Modern, allowing students to not only visit iconic tourist attractions but also immerse themselves in British culture.
