Developing the Whole Person


At St Mary’s, we pasionately believe that a good education is about providing opportunities for each girl to develop into their own person.  We are justly proud of the balance we strike between academic excellence and personal development.

A St Mary's girl will achieve excellent academic results which will enable them to go on to good universities and pursue successful careers. However, we also focus on the development of the individual, at a deeper level than any string of grades can ever reflect. After all, there are no A*s for determination, integrity, responsibility, kindness, common sense or a positive attitude to life!

Wide-ranging extra-curricular activities in sport, outdoor pursuits and the performing arts, combined with an outstanding commitment to helping the local community, ensure our girls develop self esteem, creativity, personal insight and an appreciation of the infinite possibilities life has to offer them.
