"If every child had this kind of education the world would be a better place"

Mrs Charnley

Please may I thank you for giving [my daughter] a place at St Mary’s School, Cambridge. She is very sad to leave and has many, many treasured memories of the school: your kind and skilled teachers, in particular, Mrs Gill Clifford [Head of Art] has been her inspiration; the boarding house (I have been immensely impressed by the care offered there and help when it has been needed); the school’s strawberries, which she adores!; the many friends she has made; the wonderful trip to Vienna that she was able to go on; the opportunity to row on the River Cam, which is something I know she intends to continue; and the meetings where students discuss everything from politics, social responsibilities, sexual education, and religion and listen to people speaking about their lives. She said to me she wished her time at St Mary’s School, Cambridge did not have to stop! Everything does, of course, and new doors open, but this has been a very special time at a very special school.


"It has been lovely to see the relationships [our daughter] has with her teachers."

Dr Ancliff

We are full of praise for everything you and your team have done for [our daughter] in her time at St Mary's School, Cambridge. She has acquitted herself very well academically but has also grown into a confident young lady who is determined to make her own decisions.

I’ve been dropping her at school this half term, as she can’t commute by train on crutches, and it has been lovely to see the relationships she has with her teachers. I know she will find it hard to leave as she has loved her time with you.


“It is not easy moving countries in your teens … The incredibly positive culture of the school made that transition a smooth and joyful one."

Mr and Mrs Koch

[Our daughter] has been incredibly happy here and we are very grateful for the care and kindness of all the staff and students at the school – it is not easy moving countries in your teens to settle into a new way of life in the UK! The incredibly positive culture of the school made that transition a smooth and joyful one for our two girls. Please extend our heartfelt appreciation to Charlotte and all the fantastic teaching staff."


“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing what we consider the best educational environment we could have ever hoped for to our wonderful daughter.”

Mr and Mrs Lipscombe

May I take this opportunity to offer our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for everything you and your fantastic team of dedicated teachers have done for [our daughter]. This is reflected in her positive attitude for education and the confidence she has in her relationship with others. As parents, we remember how we were overjoyed that you gave her the chance to come to this ... We shall hold on to so many good memories – schools sports day at Wilberforce Road, the Fun Run at Lammas Land, the Dance showcases and even the parents’ evenings – all so well organised and enjoyed by all. All this was made possible by strong leadership and a dedicated team of professionals and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing what we consider the best educational environment we could have ever hoped for to our wonderful daughter."
