Here at St Mary’s, whether in Prep or Senior House, your daughter will play in teams, act in plays, sing in choirs, understand the complexities of mathematical principles and concepts, explore science through scores of experiments, learn foreign languages, read Shakespeare and study philosophy. She will learn to think for herself and trust her own judgement. She will learn to compete and trust her teammates. Through all of this she will learn who she is, what she values, what she has to offer others. She will begin to create the self which she wishes to become in a supportive framework which encourages risk taking and creativity and where she will learn to make good choices. We will give your daughter an orderly environment in which the chaos of childhood can unfold in security and with purpose.
I hope that the snapshots of our world which you will see on this website will encourage you to come along and see for yourself the energy, the variety and the richness of what we have to offer. “A happier school you will not find.”
Mrs Jean Ross, Headmistress
