St Mary's is the House for girls’ boarding pupils aged 11–18. It is situated in the beautiful Priory, offering attractive common rooms, an ICT facility, study bedrooms and prep rooms. Dedicated staff work hard to create a home-from-home environment. Junior boarders sleep in cosy dormitories of a maximum of five, while seniors enjoy double and single bedrooms.
The stimulating learning culture at Prior Park during the day is further enriched in the evenings and weekends with supervised Prep sessions in the boarding house. Staff are on hand to answer questions or make suggestions for further avenues of enquiry, and peers and older students are also potential sources of wisdom. Of course, living on site means that boarders benefit from ‘after-hours’ access to the Library and IT suites.
