St Mary’s Diocesan has an excellent reputation for the quality of education delivered to their international students.

We are a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students.

Currently we have students from Korea, Thailand and Japan studying at St Mary's.



International students have ESOL classes four times per week. These classes reinforce and extend the English language development in each of our students. ESOL students from St Marys are very successful with their examinations. The ESOL teacher is also the Dean of International Students. This enables both careful monitoring of their academic progress and close supervision of their general well-being.

International students generally stay in the boarding house with the rest of the boarders. Our Homestay Co-ordinator arranges homes for each of the students for exeat weekends and holidays. We aim for each student to have the same Homestay over their time at St Mary’s.
