At St Mary’s we encourage our girls to develop a sense of responsibility for others; to become confident, compassionate women who go on to make a positive contribution to society. 

By developing innovative partnerships and working to support a variety of charities we aim to improve the lives of others and to equip our students with the skills they need to become active, engaged citizens in the future.

"The test of the curriculum is what our children become, not only in the workplace, but in being able to think about themselves and their society imaginatively and constructively; able to use the resources provided by the past in order to envisage and implement new possibilities." Alasdair MacIntyre, Virtue Ethicist & Emeritus Professor, University of Notre Dame, USA
