Mount Carmel is situated in Archway with easy access to major transport routes in Islington and the surrounding areas of Barnet, Haringey, Hackney and Camden.
Though located in Islington the college draws students from a wide area of North London.
The college is committed to individual student achievement. We provide a high quality, innovative and stimulating teaching environment where each student can learn and achieve their best.
Staff are well qualified, caring and have high expectations, which are reinforced by well prepared lessons, regular homework and a positive focus on respect and consideration for others in a Christian environment. One parent commented to OFSTED "My daughter is doing really well, the support at Mount Carmel from her teachers has given her the confidence to achieve her goals".
Students are grouped by ability as appropriate, the average class size is twenty-eight and smaller numbers in specialist subjects ensures that staff know every one of their students extremely well. Each student’s achievements, needs and progress are continually monitored so that we can provide challenging work as well as celebrating success.
The strong family atmosphere fosters an active and close partnership between home and College. Parents are encouraged to work closely with staff to ensure that their daughters achieve their full potential.
Below is a short prospectus video from Year 7 students and staff talking about the college and giving advice to students starting at a new secondary school.
