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.

We couldn’t ask any more in a school and tell all we can how amazing St Mary’s is”.

Day with the Farm

The whole school enjoyed a visit from the Farm!
From Nursery through to Year 6, everyone had the opportunity to get up close and meet the animals, from Dexter and Sooty the very friendly goats, to Dennis the donkey!
We know that the children really benefit from opportunities to learn outside the classroom.
Not just from the fresh air, but gaining confidence whilst having fun with their friends.
