"St. Mary's School is an independent, co-educational, day and boarding preparatory school offering an outstanding educational experience to boys and girls from 2 to 13 years."

We hope you enjoy exploring our school website. St. Mary's is a very happy school, where children are valued and where they are encouraged to develop their communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We aim to foster a genuine love of learning by exploring children's creative capacities and to develop in each child an understanding of the sometimes complicated but exciting world around them.   There is no better place to do this.  Come and see for yourself.

I would be delighted to show you round our school and to talk to you about life at St. Mary's. With my best wishes.
