A recognised leader in the field of girls’ independent boarding education, St Mary’s Calne has approximately 365 girls aged 11-18, including 120+ girls in the Sixth Form.

As well as innovative teaching, learning and scholarship, St Mary’s offers outstanding pastoral care and a vibrant, warm community.
An opportunity is available to join the pastoral team within one of our Lower School Boarding Houses.

In addition, the Day Housemistress helps with the organisation and administration required and is expected to be enthusiastic, energetic, flexible and have the ability to relate well to the relevant age group (11-14 years).
