Empowering girls since 1898

Join an Open Event

St Mary’s Junior School, Cambridge will empower your daughter to dream big, when it comes to her future. With us, the vital early years of education form an exceptional foundation, upon which future ambitions can take flight.

I joined St Mary’s in 2011, after training at the University of Cambridge and gaining over 10 years' experience in education. I am proud to lead a school which has a loving ethos at its core and a distinctive family feel.

Our caring, specialist teachers, will inspire your daughter’s love of learning, building her intellectual independence, critical thinking, curiosity and creativity, alongside her growing knowledge and skills. She will be part of our nurturing community, where courage, respect, compassion and integrity are part of school life.

As an all-girl’s school, we understand how to bring out the best in girls, in the classroom and beyond. Performers, leaders, coders, creators, sport-stars, thinkers … whatever your daughter’s talents, she will have many opportunities to shine.

Our students leave us prepared for success in Senior School and beyond. All our girls go on to pursue their ambitions with self-belief, energy and determination. We believe that YES SHE CAN.

I warmly invite you to visit us and see our school in action,

Mr Matthew O’Reilly, Head of Juniors

"Mr O'Reilly clearly inspires a close and dynamic relationship between all the staff and the girls and there is a sense of unity and shared focus amongst staff. I'm so impressed with the school and so glad our girls are there. I feel they are known and loved, and encouraged. Already I can see the difference this has made to my daughters." Parent Survey 2019
