What the school says...
St. Mary’s fosters an environment for each and every girl to reach their full academic and personal potential, with a focus on generating a love of learning and enquiring minds. A wide variety of subjects allows girls to pursue their talents with Drama, Art and Music available at A level, alongside all the traditional subjects. Academic success means that girls progress to a range of universities from Oxford, Exeter and Imperial College London to Royal Holloway and the Central School of Speech and Drama. All of this is achieved within an environment that considers, and works with, the individual to enable them to reach their goals; combined with an outstanding system of pastoral care this means each girl develops the confidence and self esteem to thrive and succeed. A broad selection of extra-curricular activities ensures that the girls emerge as genuinely well rounded, self-assured young women. ...Read more

Taught French at large comprehensive in Dunstable for five years before joining St Albans High School, where she spent nine years and was head of modern languages and ultimately deputy head. Says it was love at first sight with St Mary’s (‘I knew instantly this was my school’) and the love affair continues: ‘I can’t believe I get paid to be here,’ she says.
