St Mary’s College – An International School

A Global Outlook

In July 2017, St Mary’s was re-accredited as an International School by the British Council for the 4th time. A global outlook and a belief that we are stronger by embracing the world around us is at the centre of what we do.

We are a diverse community. There are over 50 languages spoken within the St Mary’s College family and nearly 60 nationalities are represented. We are a global community within our own four walls.

Our Global Partners

We have partners around the globe. We have undertaken exchanges with colleagues and students from Zespol Szkol w Warzycach in Jaslo, Poland several times over the last few years. It is essential for us at St Mary’s that we have strong ties with Poland as we have a large Polish community within our school.

We are also working in partnership with Colegio San Agustin in Alicante, Spain. This partnership exists primarily to aid students of both schools in developing their language skills. Exchanges and events are coordinated to give students the opportunity to develop their spoken and written Spanish and English respectively.

In September 2017 we launched Project: Nepal 2018. We are in the early stages of establishing a partnership with a community in Pokhara, Nepal. This partnership will allow us to support the community in Pokhara and enable us to live our Catholic mission by sharing our skills and expertise with those who live in less favourable conditions. A group from St Mary’s College will be visiting Nepal in 2018 to begin this work in earnest.
