St. Vincent’s in the 21st Century
With numbers in the order falling, the Daughters of Charity sold their convent on Blandford Street and the school building in July 2005 to Westminster Council. The sisters are now located around the country, and the school is managed by the Diocese of Westminster in partnership with Westminster Local Authority.
Following demolition of part of the former convent, a new building opened in the autumn of 2009 to serve as the Sixth Form Centre for St. Marylebone Girl’s School. The adjoining original dormitories building was converted into office and teaching space for the Sixth Form Centre, with the original Chapel on the ground floor, now occupied by St. Vincent’s Nursery and Reception classes.
