About St Mary’s School
St Mary’s School is all-through independent school for girls aged 3 -18, located in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Established in 1872, the school provides for day pupils and its grounds feature a number of old and ornate buildings.
A selective institution, St Mary’s requires potential applicants to pass a series of examinations across a broad range of subjects, as well as provide positive references from their current school. In order to improve accessibility, a number of scholarships are available, primarily based on academic ability.
