St Mary's House
at Worth

 

St Mary's is the girls' boarding house at Worth. It boasts a large and dedicated pastoral team which now includes two Housemistresses in Miss Charlotte Rule (Sixth Form) and Mrs Iria Carnota (Middles), supported by Mrs Dawn Clubb (Sixth Form Deputy Housemistress), Miss Ellie Ross (Middles Deputy Housemistress), Mrs Natalie Lynch (Sixth Form boarding tutor) and Miss Sarah Clarke (Middles boarding tutor). The House also has two matrons, Mrs Nikki Webb and Mrs Jayne Summerfield, and House Chaplain, Sarah Morgan, who is supported by Br David Jarmy. Mrs Nikki Webb is also Boarding Tutor for St Mary's.

St Mary's has a strong, friendly, family atmosphere in which each girl has the opportunity to develop a sense of belonging and identity through community, worship, hospitality and service founded in the Benedictine tradition. Every girl has a part to play: whether collecting bread or doing the washing up, every individual is a valued part of a larger community, with a caring and supportive atmosphere across all year groups.

Through early leadership opportunities, many of our girls go on to take up prefect positions in their final year. Our girls excel both on the sports field and in the classroom, and aim to give their best in everything, ready for the exciting challenges they will encounter in their future lives.

In September 2018, St Mary’s moved into new accommodation offering excellent facilities for the girls with every room having its own en suite bathroom. There is a modern and bright study area downstairs and a wonderfully spacious common room for the girls to socialise in.
