The Elms

Boarding for girls aged 16 to 18

The Elms - Year 12 and 13 (Sixth Form)

Set in the grounds of St Mary's Senior School, The Elms offers incredible views of the University of Cambridge Botanic and a tranquil, safe home from home.

  • 45 newly refurbished single bedrooms for students in Sixth Form
  • Modern bathroom facilities
  • A new, state-of-the-art kitchen
  • Laundry facilities
  • Staff accommodation
  • Just a 10-minute walk to Cambridge Rail Station and main shopping areas

The Elms provides the best of both worlds - modern amenities but steeped in history, as it first became home to St Mary's boarders in 1906.

Boarders take advantage of all the on-site facilities such as tennis courts, music rooms and outdoor gym, while also having their own private space and room, in which they can study and relax.
