“St Mary’s opens girls’ minds to the world, to have not only knowledge and understanding of it, but to be able to reflect upon culture and society and to contribute significantly to it.”

“I like the ethos of St Mary's School ... it has a holistic approach to education and I think that the staff are as concerned about the social and emotional development of students, as they are with the examination results.”
