St Mary’s School, Cambridge achieves ‘excellence in every possible area of educational provision’, according to the latest Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report. The school cherishes each student’s individuality and, recognising the world that students will inhabit when they leave its nurturing environment, St Mary’s School, Cambridge works to support each student in becoming the very best they can be.
The school's non-native English speakers benefit from their excellent English as an Additional Language (EAL) support, which is provided at no additional cost, and which students enjoy alongside a full timetable. They value their international students immensely, and all profit from their extraordinary social diversity, which surfaces on such occasions as the International Food Fair, the Boarders’ Concert and Chinese New Year festivities, as well as in more informal classroom discussions. From Junior School through to Sixth Form, students are taught by specialist teachers in subjects ranging from Computer Science, Mandarin and French, to Dance, PE and STEM. The latest cohort of Sixth Form leavers achieved the A Level results they required to propel them into a range of academic, creative and philanthropic pursuits.
Outside of the classroom, extra-curricular activities take place during lunchtime and after school, and boarders enjoy a lively and enriching timetable of social, academic and cultural trips in the evenings and at weekends, many of which are included within termly fees. The school is committed to its ‘sport for all’ mantra too, which ensures students have ample opportunities to try different sports and fitness activities throughout their childhood years to find those they will enjoy.
The school places substantial value on instilling in the girls a curious, creative and confident spirit that will, alongside their academic accomplishments and the skills they have gained, motivate and equip them for life beyond school – to create and pursue their own path to fulfilment. Students delight in their time at St Mary’s School, Cambridge.
