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.

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

Residential trips!

All of our Key Stage 2 children enjoyed the opportunity to take part in residential trips with their year groups this term.
The chance to spend time outdoors, learning new skills, building confidence and independence – and getting very muddy – was more valuable than ever after the past extraordinary year.
Activities included den building in the woods, learning to light campfires safely – and cooking s’mores on them – climbing, hiking and the very scary leap of faith!

Sports Day

This year’s Sports Day was really special, it was the first time in over a year that the whole school had come together – in socially distanced bubbles – which was wonderful.

The children all tried their very best, whether it was an extra leap in the sack race, concentrating on the tricky egg and spoon, or simply sprinting as fast as they could, all the children gave their races 100%.

Every year group took part, from our youngest children in Kindergarten to our Year 6 leavers, and they all cheered each other on with great enthusiasm!
