Sixth Form outreach in AfricaSt Mary’s has always been an outward-facing school and our Sixth Formers are just the same, recognising that they are part of both the local and global community; they take their responsibilities as global citizens seriously. Charity is an important aspect of life at St Mary’s and the Sixth Formers play an significant part in this, whether it be mentoring younger girls whilst they are in the Lower Sixth or helping to raise money for one of the chosen school charities. In addition, a growing number of our Sixth Form take part in a mentoring programme with the local Springfields Academy. Our Sixth Formers also have the opportunity to undertake international expeditions and a group have recently returned from helping to build a school in Zambia.
