AdminHistoryMaida Vale High School was opened on 5 March 1878 at Warrington Lodge, Warrington Crescent in Maida Vale, London, with 27 pupils under headmistress Miss Andrews. In 1886 the school moved to a new site at 129 Elgin Avenue. The school was renamed Paddington and Maida Vale High School in 1900. Between 1910-1912 the school was transferred to the London County Council to increase secondary education accommodation in the area. The school merged with North Paddington School to form Paddington School in 1972, and the Elgin Road site remained an annexe to the main school. The amalgamated school became part of the North Westminster Community School in 1980. The Elgin Road building was closed around 1982 and in 1992 the Elgin Road building became the Maida Vale Centre of the City of Westminster College.
