Overview

Situated within 5 minutes of Twickenham station, St Mary’s is a three form three site school with excellent teaching and learning resources on each site: Amyand Park Road for Reception and Year 1, Strafford Road for Years 2 and 3 and Richmond Road houses Years 4, 5 and 6.

Our aim is to provide an academically stimulating but caring environment where every child feels valued and is encouraged to achieve his or her full potential. St Mary’s is a church school which, we believe, helps give us our distinctive character. Christian values and beliefs form the basis of our school ethos and are reflected in our teaching and in the daily life of the school. Very importantly, we have a strong sense of community where all members of the school are encouraged to respect and value each other.

St Mary’s is also very much part of the wider community in Twickenham. The history of the school dates back to 1645, so we have a long and successful tradition of providing education for local children.
