St Mary's named 'Independent Girls' School of the Year' finalist at national awards

St Mary’s School, Cambridge, is celebrating national award recognition after it was announced as a finalist in the forthcoming, prestigious Independent Schools of the Year (ISOTY) 2023 awards. St Mary’s is up against six other leading girls’ schools in the final stage of the highly competitive ‘Independent Girls’ School of the Year’ category.

The well-regarded awards have been running for six years and this year saw hundreds of schools from across the UK submit entries into the award’s 23 different categories. Despite some tough competition, St Mary’s clearly impressed the distinguished panel of judges to be revealed as finalists in the sought after category.

Charlotte Avery, Headmistress at St Mary’s School, said:

“We are extremely proud to be chosen as a Finalist in this highly influential, national award scheme. Getting to this stage reflects the collective effort put in by the whole St Mary’s team. We excel at educating girls and we are delighted that others recognise this. It’s extremely gratifying to be acknowledged as a premier girls’ school once again alongside other powerhouses in girls’ education. We look forward to finding out the overall winners at the ceremony in October.”

The Independent Schools of the Year Awards were launched in 2018 to highlight the UK’s best independent schools and celebrate the breadth and diversity of life as a student in the independent education sector. Organised by Independent School Parent Magazine, the awards are chaired by Dr Helen Wright, an international education adviser and past Vice Chair of the Independent Schools Council. Dr Wright is supported by a panel of judges, which includes leading Head Teachers and representatives of professional associations. The overall winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Central London on Tuesday 10th October.
