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.

Start of Term!

It was a wonderful first day of term, we all enjoyed the autumn sunshine and getting back into the regular routine of the school day.

It has been fantastic to welcome so many new faces to St. Mary’s across the year groups. Our new pupils enjoyed their first day, and received a very warm welcome from all of their classmates.

Our youngest children in Nursery and Kindergarten have settled in really well, and the happy sounds of laughter and excited chatter could be heard across the playground.

We are looking forward to a happy and productive term for all our pupils.

Sports Fixtures

Our children enjoy specialist sports teaching from Nursery through to Year 6, and this term we are delighted to be participating in over 40 competitive fixtures!

Our pupils benefit from access to a wide range of sports, from hockey and netball, football and rugby, to gymnastics, swimming, cricket and lacrosse.

With regular matches against other schools in the region, the children enjoy the opportunity to represent their school and to compete as part of a team.
