St Mary’s Colchester

St Mary’s Colchester

St Mary's is a high-achieving independent day school for girls aged 3-16 and boys aged 3-4.


At St Mary’s the emphasis is on encouraging pupils to be happy and to make the most of all the opportunities school life brings. When they feel secure and supported, students do their best academically while developing as individuals, building confidence and discovering talents and interests that bring them fulfilment throughout life. We are a British Council INTERNATIONAL School; we have a thriving and DEMOCRATIC School Council; we are an Ambassador ECO School; We promote ADVENTURE through a programme of visits and trips and regular Forest School sessions; student LEADERSHIP is embedded; we make a difference through SERVICE by charitable fundraising and community involvement, which is part of our ethos.

What being a RS school means to us

We are incredibly excited about becoming a Round Square school and are looking forward to embracing the opportunities that membership offers for our students. It is only just becoming apparent what a rich and varied organisation we are joining, with the prospect for our students to make connections locally, nationally and globally that will enrich the rest of their lives. We are looking forward to emphasising the IDEALS as foundation stones on which our school is built.
