St Mary's School

Our School

Choosing the right school for one’s child is probably the most important decision one has to make as a parent. We welcome you to St Mary’s School Hampstead. Our school is an independent Catholic school for girls from 2-11 years.

At St Mary’s School Hampstead, we believe children achieve their best when they learn in a happy, nurturing environment. Within our school, we have high expectations that all our pupils do their best and pursue their talents, whether they be academic, sporting or in the performing arts. It is our role to give each and every one of them the opportunity to shine.

The School has invested in an extensive refurbishment programme to deliver the most up-to-date and stimulating teaching spaces. A key priority has been incorporating the latest technology to bring learning to life with iPads and Chromebooks accessible to every pupil. The spacious classrooms are now flooded with natural light and offer innovative flexible seating.

Our pioneering Global Learning Centre opened in September 2019. The space includes a cutting-edge Engineering and Robotics Lab, Virtual Reality Launch Pad, Art and Design Studio as well as a Green Room. This modern, innovative centre is designed to promote and integrate STEAM at St Mary’s School. Undoubtedly, STEAM provides girls with advanced skills for the next stage of their education.

Moreover, the focus on technology equally balances an emphasis on creative and physical development at St Mary’s School. Music, drama, art and sports are an essential part of school life and involve everyone. The modernisation programme has enhanced the extensive outside space for all age groups. Climbing equipment has been installed and the upgraded full-size netball court allows football, rugby, cricket and tennis training and matches.

Used together – the integrated technology, the flexible seating and the broad curriculum – the St Mary’s pupils are flourishing. They are adopting habits of learning and are making independent choices that they will take forward into their secondary education and beyond.

Everything we do is for the benefit of the children. For this reason, we place a strong emphasis on working in partnership with parents. We are proud of our school and all that it has to offer our staff, our students and our parents.
