About St Mary’s School

St Mary’s Ascot is a leading Roman Catholic boarding school set in 55 acres of beautiful grounds in the heart of Berkshire. The school was founded in 1885 but has been continuously improved since then. In 2006, the school opened its new state-of-the-art Orchard sports centre and in 2009 a professional standard Performing Arts centre.

We run two exciting programmes at St Mary’s which offer a more age specific academic, onsite and excursion programme. St Mary’s is a fully secure campus with 24 hour security on site making it ideally suited to our Tigers programmes for younger students.

Recommended ages: 7-15
