Inspiring Cambridge

Our learning environment extends beyond the classroom. Cambridge - a renowned seat of learning - inspires and enthuses a passion for knowledge in all our students.

Education on our doorstep

Our Senior School, Sixth Form and Mary Ward Boarding House offer stunning views of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden, whilst our Junior School looks out on the idyllic meadowland of Coe Fen. At St Mary’s School, Cambridge learning goes beyond our school gates.

Not only do we offer the best of a British education in Cambridge, and a reliable pathway to some of the best universities and careers in the world, but in addition, while studying at St Mary’s School, Cambridge our students become immersed in Cambridge life.

Our Boarders have organised activities each weekend – from punting, visiting Evensong at King’s College and cream teas on the lawn by the River Cam, to trips to museums and attractions such as the Fitzwilliam, The Scott Polar Institute and Ely Cathedral. We ensure our students truly embrace their local surroundings.

At our Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form, local visits form a huge part of our academic year. Whether it is viewing the latest art installation at Kettle’s Yard, watching a ballet at the theatre or a talk from a speaker from the hub of Silicon Fen, Cambridge’s home to high-tech industry, entrepreneurs, and innovation; we take advantage of the wealth of inspiration and opportunities to learn that are all within walking distance.

“We go on trips at the weekend and they are really fun. I have been to: Fitzwilliam Museum, Grantchester and Harry Potter World.” Boarder
