Set in 55 acres of beautiful countryside on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, St Mary's Shaftesbury is a leading independent school for girls aged 11-18. Its Catholic ethos sets it apart, creating a happy and vibrant boarding and day community. Outstanding teachers and excellent pastoral care enable girls to achieve their ambitions in a relaxed but stimulating environment, where Oxbridge and Russell Group university success is realised.
At St Mary's, girls have the confidence to be themselves, to be creative whilst exploring the educational opportunities around them and participate in the wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer. Girls feel able to take risks, become resilient and independent, whilst enjoying the benefits of an all girls' education.
Allowing the girls the opportunity to flourish and mature in the right environment fosters individual success: it inspires independent minds.
