St Mary’s Sixth is the girls’ boarding House at Worth for girls in Years 12 and 13. There are about 40 girls in St Mary's Sixth and the Housemistress is Miss Charlotte Rule.
Miss Rule is supported by a Deputy Housemistress, Mrs Jayne Summerfield as Matron and Miss Tola Olawuyi as Boarding Tutor.
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.
St Mary’s, situated with beautiful views of the South Downs, offers excellent facilities for the girls with every room having its own en suite bathroom. St Mary’s Sixth girls would normally have single rooms, although some Year 12 girls may also share a double, all with en suite bathrooms. There is a modern and bright study area downstairs and a wonderfully spacious common room for the girls to socialise in.
