Mount St Mary’s College, a Catholic co-educational boarding and day school, provides the perfect setting for learning.

Steeped in history, the college was established by the Society of Jesuits back in 1842 and grew around a 16th century manor house. Today the historic character of the buildings and the acres of beautiful gardens surrounding them make the college a unique environment.

While there is a long tradition of educating children in the Catholic faith, the school caters for children of all denominations. The emphasis is placed on nurturing each person as an individual, encouraging them to develop, not just academically, but spiritually and emotionally.

The focus on the individual, coupled with small class sizes, means that pupils are given every chance to develop their strengths. Whether their interests are in music, arts, drama or sports, they are offered all the support they need to develop their talents and prepare for their future.

Mount St Mary’s College is well located. Its beautiful setting in the Derbyshire countryside belies the fact it is just two minutes from Junction 30 of the M1 and only 30 minutes from Sheffield and Doncaster railway stations.
