Timeline

 

St Mary's School, Waverley, is an independent school catering for girls from Grades 000 to matric. It was established in 1888, making it Johannesburg’s oldest school. Its rich history, its  leadership and its Anglican tradition and ethos ensure that it remains relevant in the South African context yet offers an education for a 21st century global world. Its pupils come from a diversity of backgrounds and are encouraged to embrace their individuality, to be open, friendly and confident. An impressive number have made their mark in the arts and sciences, in business, politics, the media and sport, both locally and abroad.

Little Saints

Our Reggio-inspired socio-constructivist approach to pre-school education allows children to find meaning in and build their understanding of the world in which they live, through their own exploration and discovery.

Junior School

The programme of St Mary's Junior School is holistic and rigorous. A strong academic core, the stimulation of creative ability and the building of personal resilience form the foundation of our current curriculum.

Senior School

St Mary’s head of school, the school board, the parents and teachers all contribute, through their dedication to excellence, their adherence to sound spiritual values and their strength in the face of challenges, to producing strong and resilient young women.
