Finalists for Independent Schools of the Year Awards

7 September 2022

St Mary’s has been selected as a finalist for the Independent Schools of the Year 2022 Awards! The school’s commitment to eco initiatives, has been recognised by our successful entry in the Green Award for Environmental Achievement category. Environmental awareness is an integral part of the whole school, from future school developments, curriculum planning, through to fun and innovative activities and initiatives, such as gardening clubs and competitions and even upcycling for art projects and the annual ‘Trashion’ Show. Congratulations to the Lower School and Senior School Eco Teams for their continuous hard work!

St Mary’s School is an Eco School and is one of only five schools in the UK to achieve national Eco-Schools Ambassador status and has been awarded eight Green Flags to recognise the commitment shown to creating a sustainable environment in which to educate future generations.

The winners of each category, plus the overall Independent School of the Year, will be announced at the Independent Schools of the Year 2022 awards ceremony being held on Tuesday 11 October.
