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.

Year 1 Art

The children in Year 1 have been learning about Aboriginal art in their art lessons this month.

Discovering the fascinating traditions behind the unique designs, the class have been creating their own pieces, including this beautiful turtle.

We love the vibrant colours and are looking forward to seeing more work as their projects develop this term.
