A welcome from the Chair of Governors

I would like to echo Mrs Edward's welcome to you all and I thank you for your interest in our school.


St Mary’s school has a long tradition in Rickmansworth, dating back to 1711.


We are proud of our pupils’ achievements in all areas of their school life, whether those achievements are academic, creative or sporting.


In 2018, our school was inspected by two bodies; the first inspection, in  February, was by Ofsted who graded the school ta good school”. The second inspection was by SIAS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools). We were deemed “a good school”.


Our pupils enjoy coming to school. They also enjoy their lessons and their extra-curricular activities.  In line with the school’s Christian ethos, we take a pride in educating our pupils and developing a strong sense of morality in them, whatever their faith or none.
