About Us

St Mary’s School is an independent primary school where a broad and exciting curriculum is enhanced by subject specialist teachers at every stage.

St. Mary’s Private School in Henley-on Thames, Oxfordshire has a rich tradition of providing exceptional education to children for over 90 years. St. Mary’s approach reaps rewards, with results from academic yearly progress tests consistently exceeding the national average in all core subjects. Outstanding results ensure children are offered places at some of the most prestigious schools in the area, including the offer of scholarships, awards and exhibitions.

“I cannot fault St. Mary’s. Both our children have teachers who really know them and want them to build on their strengths but also help them to improve on areas they find more difficult’.
