Empowering girls since 1898

Join an Open Event

It is a pleasure to welcome you to St Mary’s Junior School and I very much hope that as you come to explore our community further you will see what we see; a happy, thriving, academically aspirational and innovative learning environment where every girl is valued, supported and encouraged. 

We are thrilled to have extended our offering and to now be welcoming girls from age 3. Throughout your daughter’s time with us we aim to create a calm and exciting learning environment where children feel welcome and are encouraged to harness their natural curiosity as we support them in becoming enthusiastic, life-long learners.  

We place each individual child at the centre of everything that we do to enable them to develop to their potential and become a kind and caring member of our community. Our enthusiastic specialist staff use their experience to provide a child-centred, academically ambitious curriculum through which girls discover a love of learning. We know that young girls learn best when they are motivated, appropriately challenged and given opportunities to direct their own learning. With the use of our exceptional facilities, both inside and out, as well as experienced and passionate staff, our team easily spark these curious young minds, catering for individual learning styles and facilitating outstanding academic results.  

We hope these pages will give you a little flavour of our school and life at St Mary’s Cambridge. However, the very best way to learn about the values and ethos of a school is to visit and see the children in action. Therefore, I would encourage you to arrange an appointment to see us for yourself. In doing so, I am sure you will enjoy the excited chatter, the purposeful buzz and nurturing atmosphere fostered, and I hope you will be able to imagine your daughter with us.  

I very much look forward to welcoming you to St Mary’s Junior School and discussing what an education with adventure could do for your child.
