Welcome to St Mary’s

I hope that as you explore our website you’ll begin to get a real feel for the unique character of our school. St Mary’s is an independent school in Colchester, Essex for girls age 3-16 and boys age 3-4. We are proud to have charitable status, meaning all fees are reinvested into the school. We are also truly independent, with no owners or shareholders, and are overseen by a committed governing body who help ensure we provide a high quality and brilliantly balanced education, and a happy learning environment.
