Learning doesn’t only take place in the classroom at St Mary’s. Pupils take part in a huge number of visits, clubs and activities, all designed to increase their understanding of the world and introduce them to new skills and interests.
Each year group benefits from a vast range of inspiring and educational visits, from theatre excursions to field trips, linked to the curriculum. Pupils learn about their local area with a focus on the rich history of Colchester as well as its geography and people.
Pupils also travel further afield to sites of relevance to their learning. Residential trips in Year 5 and 6 are a highlight with friendships cemented and memories made! There’s also the opportunity for Year 6 girls to join students from Year 7 at the Senior School on a ski trip.
From athletics to ballet, there are clubs and activities to suit all interests at St Mary’s. As well as sports, art, drama and music clubs, pupils can also try activities such as yoga or dancing. An example of the clubs available can be found in the our latest clubs booklet, available on request.
