Higher Education and Careers

At St Mary’s we are as ambitious about the girls’ futures as they are. Our ethos is to focus on the individual; we support each and every pupil with their next step to help them realise their aspirations and full potential.

We place great emphasis on preparing and guiding our pupils to make informed decisions and choices so that they can embark on their futures with confidence and not trepidation. Girls leave St Mary’s feeling confident and excited about their future.

St Mary's Shaftesbury-Higher Education and Careers 4

Our staff ensure that the Sixth Form girls have the opportunity to attend university fairs and visit universities of interest. We hold a careers event here at school and mock interview training as well as providing career mentoring and networking through our extensive alumnae database, our past and current parents and local businesses.

Whether a pupil wishes to join our Oxbridge applicants or audition for specialist dance training, they will be supported in whatever higher education or careers decision they make.
