Word From The Head

Danuta Staunton

Welcome to St Mary’s School Ascot, a leading Roman Catholic boarding school for girls aged between 11 and 18 years.

St Mary’s is a warm and caring community where we are passionate about bringing out the full potential of each of our 390 pupils. As a full boarding school, with only a few places for day pupils who live nearby, we offer a wealth of co-curricular opportunities, meaning that life at St Mary’s is vibrant, exciting and always good fun. We are proud of the strength of our academic achievements and work tirelessly to build on our tradition of excellence both in and out of the classroom.

We are a 45 minute journey from London, and are set in 55 acres of beautiful grounds. We would be very pleased to welcome you to St Mary’s at one of our Open Mornings, to show you our school and to introduce you to some of our pupils. In the meantime, we hope this website will give you a flavour of life at St Mary’s and the excellent opportunities and facilities we offer.

Open Days, Visits & Events

09-03-2024 - Open Morning

These Open Mornings usually take place four times a year, two in the Michaelmas term, one in the Lent term and one in the Summer term. The mornings begin with refreshments and a welcome from the Headmistress, after which you will have an opportunity to ask questions.

This will be followed by a guided tour of the school and a short concert in our Chapel. You are invited to stay for a buffet lunch where members of staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
