Heathfield St Mary’s School offers girls a very special type of education.
As an all-girls' independent school, for 11-18 year olds, the girls are encouraged to achieve their potential in a supportive yet challenging environment. As a full boarding school, we offer unrivalled opportunities for personal growth and development. The day does not end at four o’clock, nor the week on Friday. We take care of our girls academically, socially and pastorally in an environment which can only exist in a full boarding school.
The education we offer is both relevant and inspiring, offering your daughter the knowledge, skills and values essential for her future. Small classes and a focus on individual learning help us to maintain excellent academic standards.
Christian values are central to the school. They are demonstrated through our pastoral care and the nature of our community life. Each child feels valued and friendships made at our school last a lifetime.
Following the merger of Heathfield and St Mary’s Wantage in 2006, we launched a development plan which will deliver some new first-class facilities. Heathfield St Mary’s draws on the strengths of both schools to offer the very best education for girls.
Please do come and visit our school. It is the best way to experience for yourself all that we have to offer and is a great opportunity to meet staff and pupils.
I look forward to meeting you.

The Heathfield School Foundation will provide a platform for the continuous raising of capital in order to build a level of endowment that a school with the ambition of Heathfield St Mary’s needs to have in place.
Led by a board of trustees, made up of parents and old girls, our aim is to involve and include the energy and goodwill of everyone who shares a commitment to the future of Heathfield St Mary’s and we welcome all contributions to this process.
Now that the formal merger of Heathfield and St Mary’s Wantage is completed it is the intention of the Foundation to change its name to reflect the combined forces of both school communities, later this year.

Over the years, both Heathfield and St Mary's have been fortunate to benefit from the loyal support of their old girls. The Heathfield Fellowship and the St Mary's Old Girls Association will continue to operate as the old girls’ associations for the existing old girls. We will also seek to co-ordinate the activities of the two groups in the future for the benefit of the new generation of Heathfield St Mary's Old Girls and School.
