Scholarships 2025

​​At St Mary's College, we aim to educate our students with an appreciation of the spiritual as well as the intellectual and physical aspects of their lives. We strive to create an environment that puts the student at the centre and where that student is supported by dedicated teaching staff and tremendous community spirit.  We aim to instil a can-do attitude in all our students and work with them all to engender high aspiration and a range of personal skills and qualities including self-confidence and leadership abilities. We ensure that we are developing our students not just academically, but as well-rounded young adults ready to be future citizens who will positively contribute to their community and the wider society when they leave. ​
