St Mary's School, Hampstead provides an outstanding and inspirational Catholic education to girls from 2 years 6 months - 11 years.

St Mary's School celebrates the uniqueness of every pupil and their achievements. The rigorous, challenging curriculum places a strong emphasis on high academic achievement within a culture of care and support.

The school aims to instil four key habits of learning in their pupils. The children are encouraged to be risk-takers, not only in their play, but also in their learning. They are also taught to be resilient and not to give up at the first hurdle. The girls at St Mary's School are respectful, not just of each other, but of themselves. Finally, pupils are encouraged to be reflective on their faith, behaviour and academic work.

The school has invested in an extensive refurbishment programme to deliver the most up-to-date and stimulating learning spaces. The Global Learning Centre is a cutting-edge space that includes an Engineering and Robotics Lab, Virtual Reality Launch Pad, Art and Design Studio as well as a Green Room. Another key priority has been incorporating the latest technology to bring learning to life with iPads and Google Chromebooks accessible to every pupil.

The focus on technology is equally balanced with an emphasis on creative and physical development. Music, drama, art and sports are an essential part of school life and involve everyone. The unique and extensive outdoor area allows girls the space to breathe and consists of climbing equipment and a full-size netball court.

Leavers achieve impressive results, gaining offers and Academic Scholarships from the best schools in the country, including Channing School, City of London School for Girls, Francis Holland School, Highgate School, North London Collegiate, South Hampstead High School, St Mary's Ascot and St Paul's Girls' School.
