St Mary's Calne is a boarding and day school of around 350 girls aged 11–18. Approximately 80% of the girls board and it is a rich boarding life with all girls taking part in the full-curriculum and extracurricular activities. It is the individualised approach to every aspect of school life that makes St Mary’s Calne special.
All girls go on to higher education, and a lecture programme, debating, careers advice and much more prepare the girls for university and beyond.
