About Us

Marylebone Boys’ School was established in 2014 and is located in the heart of Paddington. It is a traditional, academically rigorous secondary free school for boys with a mixed sixth form.

The school had its first Ofsted inspection in May 2017, and received a ‘Good’ rating in all categories of judgement. Ofsted commented that ‘Leaders, staff and governors have created a successful school where pupils are taught well and make good progress.” Ofsted, May 2017.

MBS received its first ever set of GCSE results in August 2019, which you can read more about here.

We embrace our motto, Studio et industria (Latin for “through application and hard work”), and ensure appropriate support and stretch for each individual.

To support our school mission, we teach our students to develop three MBS core values:


MBS boys will be professional leaders who conduct themselves in a professional manner, ensuring respectful interactions with all peers and adults to allow them to become successful, independent citizens in their community and career.


MBS boys will be positive role models who are rewarded for their hard work and are able to use feedback as an opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge. Students will have a positive and collaborative approach to learning, contributing fully at all times.


MBS boys will be productive citizens who are ambitious and work hard; they will take opportunities within the curriculum to use the ‘4 R Learning Powers’ (Resourcefulness, Reciprocity, Resilience and Reflection) and have a growth mindset, allowing them to embrace new challenges. MBS boys will always work to their absolute maximum.
