Many girls in the Lower School choose to board at St Mary’s, and even girls starting Year 7 as Day Girls who live in the local area choose to change to boarding by the time they start Year 8.

For girls who are not yet ready for full boarding, we offer the St Mary’s Boarding Pathway. This allows students to experience the joys of boarding with their peers while also allowing them to go home during the week. Girls can choose to go home on Wednesday evenings after Games and/or on Saturday afternoons after any Sporting commitments.
