Gym and Dance Show


Whole School Gym and Dance Show

This July the School held its biennial Gym and Dance Show, a wonderful event that showcases gymnastics and dancing of all types across the entire school. From Early Years Ballet all the way up to Sixth Form routines, this show was an absolute joy to watch and a brilliant display of the amazing talent we are lucky enough to have at St Mary’s.

Record Breaker Emma Mitchell at Speech Day


Emma Mitchell at Speech Day

Our annual Prize Giving was, as always, a fantastic event and we were delighted to welcome speaker Emma Mitchell, a Member of the Coxless Crew who completed the Pacific Ocean row from America to Australia in January 2016, setting two world records.      Emma was inspirational to listen to and spoke to our girls about resilience, and also humour! Both key ingredients in tackling any challenge head on. Congratulations to all the girls on their prizes, and sincere thanks to all the speakers, singers and instrumentalists.

House Drama Competition


House Drama Competition

At the end of term the girls in Senior House were given a simple brief; choose a  children’s book by a British author from the 20th or 21st Century. They then had to create a play from that book including writing a script and making their own props and scenery. Temple-West chose Peter Pan, Butler chose Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Kirk chose Oliver and Latham chose Gangsta Granny. After some thoroughly creative and amusing performances, Latham were declared theatrical winners!

MUN Success at conference


Congratulations to the Year 10 Model UN team on their fantastic success last Friday. All 11 students spent the day arguing, negotiating, reporting and writing resolutions with other schools from across Bucks. The topic this year was especially challenging and dealt with The Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons. After an incredibly busy day of international politics and diplomacy, the students emerged victorious. Congratulations to Qi, Ellen, Aneet and Sara for their first place awards; Isabelle and Loletta for their special mentions; and Millie for writing the winning resolution. You all worked so hard for this and we are very proud of your wonderful achievements.
