St. Mary’s School, Cambridge

St Mary’s School is the leading independent day and boarding school for girls aged 3 to 18 in Cambridge. As a finalist in the national Independent School of the Year Awards for ‘Independent Girls’ School of the Year’, and rated excellent by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, our education builds self-confidence and inspires a love of learning.

“ My daughter has gone from being a shy person with not much self-esteem to a confident, happy young adult. Her working ethos is so motivated, and her peers are so friendly and supportive.” Parent Survey

Beginning in our Preschool, we give children the right start to education, ensuring that their first experiences of education spark confidence and curiosity. By Sixth Form, St Mary’s students leave school knowing that there are no boundaries to what they can achieve. Our results are testimony to the individual support that St Mary’s pupils receive, as 97% of our graduating A Level students attend their first-choice university course this year.

We offer a balanced and creative education in the liberal tradition, rooted in our timeless Christian values. Boarders join us from Year 5, aged 9, and live in Mary Ward House While academic results open doors for our students, it is their self-belief, persistence and motivation that carry them even further, supported by our exceptional pastoral care.


Core values of courage, respect, compassion, and integrity support all aspects of our students’ growth at our faith-based school. This tailored approach to learning is supported by world-class facilities, including a boathouse that sits on the banks of the river Cam, and new sports grounds on Long Road, shared with Homerton College.
