‘We continue to confound stereotypes’

Mayfield has been shortlisted for Independent Girls’ School of the Year Award. SO Magazine discovers why this long-standing educational establishment has made the grade


Mayfield, the leading Catholic independent day and boarding school for girls aged 11 to 18, has been shortlisted for the Independent Schools of the Year Awards for the second year running in the Girls’ School of the Year category.

This follows a year in which the girls have continued to confound stereotypes. A group of budding Sixth Form engineers won a national accolade for their plan to reduce carbon emissions and make Mayfield village more sustainable, placing second out of 140 Schools from across the UK in this year’s Institute of Civil Engineers CityZen Competition.

Three Lower Sixth pupils then went on to win a coveted gold award at the British Physics Olympiad, placing them in the top four nationally.

Complementing the curriculum at Mayfield are a huge variety of extra-curricular activities. These activities range from coding to debating to learning sign language, alongside a comprehensive programme of sporting opportunities catering to all abilities and interests.

This environment encourages girls to expand their interests and talents while nurturing their individual voices. The school provides a supportive atmosphere where girls learn the value of making mistakes in order to contribute to their learning.
