Why St Mary's? - St Mary's Anglican Girls' School

Why St Mary’s?


Everyone is welcome at St Mary’s. We are a school that provides a respectful and supportive environment for girls to discover their passions and talents.

Personal and academic excellence is important to us and we will work with your daughter to find her a learning pathway that will ultimately allow her flourish in her career of choice.   

We are a school with a rich history that offers a contemporary curriculum. We embrace experiential learning and promote student agency. Our coastal location and beautiful campus provides space for students to collaborate or find a quiet spot for personal study and reflection. We have space to run, jump, swim, sing, dance or relax with friends.   

We want our students to be courageous, compassionate and confident young women. We challenge their thinking and offer many opportunities for them to develop their leadership and critical thinking skills inside and outside the classroom.   

Our co-curricular program offers something for everyone and we celebrate the joy and personal growth that these activities bring to our students. 

We are an Anglican school and our faith underpins all aspects of life at St Mary’s. Spiritual wellbeing is just as important as physical wellbeing and we aim to provide a caring and connected community for your daughter. We believe that this support is key to academic success.  

Your daughter will make friendships for life at St Mary’s. She will be part of a proud community of women who pursue diverse careers and make a difference in the world.   

Quite simply, we want your daughter to discover her best.
