St Mary's School Hampstead provides an outstanding and inspirational Catholic education to girls from 3-11 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 fall at the first hurdle. Staff ask the children to make mistakes because in the process of challenging themselves, they make more academic progress. The girls at St Mary's School are respectful, not just of each other, but of themselves. Finally, pupils are encouraged to be reflective, of their behaviour and their academic work.

An extensive refurbishment programme has been completed to deliver the most enriching and stimulating learning environments. 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. This technology is used to support and enhance all curriculum areas and learning every day from Nursery to Year 6.

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. St Mary's School is a leafy oasis in the heart of Hampstead. The extensive and self-contained outside space includes climbing equipment and the full-size netball court has been upgraded enabling football, rugby, cricket and tennis to be enjoyed.

Used together - the integrated technology and the broad curriculum - the girls at St Mary's are flourishing. They are adopting habits of learning and making independent choices that they can take forward into their secondary education.

Leavers achieve impressive results, gaining offers and Academic Scholarships from schools including 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.
