ST Mary’s girls don’t just enjoy equal opportunities, they enjoy every opportunity. St Mary’s is a respected school, steeped in tradition and family values. Our heritage, based on Christian values and an understanding of accountability and self, is at the heart of everything that we do.

While we may be 111 years old, our thoughts are innovative, our systems progressive and our approach is modern. This allows us to focus on our vision of a brighter future for each and every girl at the school, laying solid foundations right from Grade R to enable her to grow into a confident and happy person.

We encourage girls to measure themselves against their own performances and not those of others, thereby developing a sense of self-worth, self-respect and self-motivation.

“We want our girls to feel valued and supported in their school environment, and respectful of the role that they play in our close-knit community, in society, and in our country. Our motto ‘Service before self and God before all’ serves as a constant reminder of our roots and our responsibilities,” says Jonathan Manley, executive principal.

Matric results

St Mary’s achieved a 100% bachelor’s degree pass rate, with an average of 3.44 distinctions per student and 341 distinctions overall. With this, 78% of our final results were either an A or a B. We were one of only two schools to have seven of our girls placed in the top 5% of students who wrote the IEB examinations.

Specialists in girls’ education

We employ experienced, qualified teachers who are passionate about what they do. This shines through in their ability to provide our girls with a holistic education that is tailored towards girls.

Confidence

Our girls have the freedom to truly be themselves. They are able to enjoy an environment in which their intellectual and physical confidence can blossom.

Care and support

We understand girls. We understand their needs and provide a nurturing environment where they feel comfortable exploring all the opportunities that are available to them.

Boarding

Boarding is part of the fabric of our school. Open to girls from Grade 8 to matric, our boarding houses create a sense of family. Here, lifelong bonds are formed and our girls learn valuable lessons and develop a healthy sense of independence.

Leadership

The girls of today are the future leaders of tomorrow. Our school provides the perfect platform for your daughter to learn the value of responsibility, and the potential she has to inspire and lead others.
