St Mary’s School
St Mary’s, Gerrards Cross, places great emphasis on the value of the individual, on knowing each child, who she is and how she learns; its philosophy is firmly rooted in the belief that a happy child is a successful child. Equally important is the pursuit of academic excellence.
In a school where such high priority is placed on the importance of the individual, this excellence will mean very different things for different girls. The small classes at St Mary’s mean that staff know each girl really well and can tailor their teaching to fit the whole, fascinating kaleidoscope of learning styles and learning needs in front of them. No girl here ever becomes ‘lost in the crowd’. Nor does St Mary’s ever lose sight of the crucial importance of the traditional curriculum, those essential building blocks of literacy, numeracy and thinking skills from which all learning must grow.
If you are looking for academic provision that ensures that every girl has the opportunity to achieve her best, extra-curricular provision that ensures that every girl can identify and exploit her talents, all underpinned by a system of pastoral care that is second to none, then St Mary’s is the school for you.
