St Mary's Private School, Henley-on-Thames

Welcome to St Mary’s, a leading independent school, located in beautiful Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

We provide education and inspiration for children in Early Years through to Year 6 before they move on to some of the most selective of senior schools.

Our website aims to give you a snapshot of life at St Mary’s and of what we can offer your child. What it cannot do is to convey the warm, lively and productive atmosphere that prevails here. We place equal value on intellectual rigour and enjoyment of learning so why not come and see St Mary’s for yourself and watch the school at work.

Throughout 2020, St Mary’s provided certainty, consistency and structure at a time when all were hard to come by. Now, as we begin 2021 in lockdown, our Online Learning provisions will ensure that pupils receive a continuous and uninterrupted education.

Our Admissions department also remains virtually open, ready to talk to you about your child’s educational future.

Remote teaching and learning

Whilst our school is closed during the current lockdown, the teaching and learning of our pupils continues online.

We have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback from parents, and very impressed with how quickly our children have made the transition to learning remotely.  We really hope to be able to welcome everyone back into school soon, but until then we will continue to support all our St. Mary’s families who are learning at home.

Welcome back!

Welcome back to the start of term.

It is not how we would have wished the Spring Term to start, but we have been really impressed with how quickly everyone has settled into their remote learning this morning.

We have really enjoyed seeing the Nursery and Key Worker children who are in school today, and to hearing all about their Christmas breaks.

The brilliant St. Mary’s spirit is once again bringing the school community together and will keep us all going through these next few weeks, until we are able to welcome all of our pupils back into school once more.
