Welcome to Heathfield St Mary's School

Frances King

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.

T he 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.

Old Girls

 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.

For further information please visit the websites or contact the Chairmen.

  • Academic excellence – the school aims to develop in its girls a sense of academic wonder and ambition and encourage them to explore and delight in the world of learning;
  • A contemporary curriculum – whilst retaining its traditional strengths, the curriculum adapts to the world of new opportunities. The school encourages girls to use knowledge effectively and creatively, as well as developing skills in team building, communications and problem-solving;
  • All girls – we believe in creating an environment which recognises the particular needs of girls, and which provides them with the security and support they need to challenge themselves, take risks in learning both within and beyond the classroom, and enjoy time with their peers, without distraction;
  • Full boarding – this is central to the ethos of the school. Full boarding enables the girls to learn about the give and take of community life, develop lasting friendships and grow into well-rounded, independent young women;
  • Strong pastoral care – the well-being of the girls is paramount, and we adopt a highly effective approach to pastoral care;
  • Christian foundation – Christian teaching is the rock on which the school is built, challenging the expectations and values of today’s society and encouraging the girls to develop a broader, deeper perspective on life and their responsibilities as members of the wider community; and
  • Staff development – our staff are extremely well qualified, highly trained and committed to educating girls for the 21st century.
