In The Classroom

As they say, your school days are the best of your life so at Stella Maris, it’s our intention to make sure every child experiences just that.


We’re like one happy family, where children are treated as individuals, where learning is fascinating and fun, where life skills are developed – and where we work hard to make sure every pupil succeeds regardless of ability.


With small class sizes, we get to know each child’s needs quickly, something that allows us to provide the levels of attention, care, tutoring and understanding that help make each school day so rewarding. It is also this individual care and attention that allows our children so much success in the 11+.  For example, all our children have individual time with their form teacher every week – for the little ones this can be developing their reading and as they go into Juniors this is often in different areas dependent on that child’s individual needs.


The size of the school also allows all children to have active an part in the Christmas Show, the Summer show and assemblies which develops their public speaking skills and grows their confidence.


With never more than seventy pupils, Stella Maris is big on bringing out the very best in every child.
