History of St Mary’s School
The school was originally founded in 1824 in York Street, next to the parish church, and served a wide area until other local schools were built. An Infants’ schoolroom was added in 1888 but destroyed in an air raid in 1944. In 1969 it moved to a new building in Enford Street, and in 2000 a Nursery Class was added.
St Mary’s Today
St Mary's is a one form entry school in Marylebone, central London. We are a happy school, built on core values which underpin all that we do. The staff team and school community work incredibly well together to ensure that everyone at St Mary's Bryanston Square Primary thrives!
We are a Good school (February 2020), where 'pupils like coming to school and are happy. Children enjoy their learning and speak enthusiastically about learning new skills...' 'Pupils feel safe at school, they behave well and work hard because they are respectful and attentive to their teachers'
Our school provide a broad and balanced education for all our children; one which excites the children and helps them to develop a thirst for knowledge. We want every child to achieve as highly as they can, in all areas of learning and life enabling them to become proud citizens of our community.
Children are proud of their school and seek to make it a harmonious place for every member of the school community. We are very well supported by our parents in striving to provide our children with a safe, nurturing environment in which to learn.
The school has an active ‘Friends’ association that includes parents and staff. The Friends have worked hard in recent years to both fundraise for projects, including redeveloping our school library, and to encourage all parents to become involved in the school. Employees from some local firms also volunteer on a regualr basis, supporting children with their reading and learning about Maths and Science.
We have a strong relationship with our Church, St Mary’s Bryanston Square, who lead acts of worship and run clubs in school for the children.
We are very proud of our whole school community, and we always enjoy welcoming visitors to St Mary’s. Please come and visit us!
