Junior School Leadership Team

The St Mary’s School, Cambridge staff member recognises that ours is not a one-size-fits-all approach.

He or she is a committed person who provides a strong moral and spiritual framework for our pupils, exemplifying the core values of integrity, justice and respect for human dignity.

They guide our girls through their educational journey and are dedicated to nurturing new talents and to opening doors to creativity, self-development, and new friendships. They walk alongside our parents, valuing their role as the first educator of their child and create a learning environment of love, hope and joy based on Gospel values in which individuals are cherished and genuine relationships are nurtured.

Our Junior School teachers are highly qualified and enthusiastic, and include graduates from leading universities as well as staff members who have indispensable non-teaching experience.
