- Head Miss Antonia Beary
Mayfield is a leading Catholic independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18, set in 70 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside, within an hour of central London and with easy access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
A Mayfield education combines academic excellence, breadth of opportunity and exceptional pastoral care. The School’s ethos reflects our Catholic heritage and fosters integrity, generosity, respect and a desire to be the best you can be within a vibrant and inclusive community, which welcomes all.
Mayfield is successful in unlocking and developing the unique potential of each girl, with the opportunity and support to enhance known talents and discover hidden ones. Academic excellence is achieved through inspirational teaching from highly-qualified and dedicated staff, together with an innovative curriculum, which encourages questioning, reflection, creativity and the freedom to learn from mistakes.
Individuality and independence of thought, based on sound knowledge and understanding, are encouraged. Whilst Maths and Science are amongst our most popular and successful subjects at A Level, the School has a first class reputation for creativity and excels in the creative and performing arts.
The benefits of a broad and balanced education are immeasurable and academic study is complemented by a rich and diverse variety of activities beyond the classroom. From dance to debating, ceramics to music, drama to Duke of Edinburgh’s award, together with a full programme of sporting opportunities including cricket and top class equestrian facilities on campus, girls are challenged and nurtured to realise their full potential, endowing them with a lifelong love of learning and the opportunity to grow as individuals.
Mayfield girls progress to prestigious universities in the UK and, increasingly, to the US and Europe, to study a wide range of subjects, with a regular stream of medics, vets, architects, lawyers, economists and linguists. Just as important as academic success, girls leave Mayfield with enduring friendships, open minds, strength of character and the lifelong support of a global community.
For the past 150 years, Mayfield has nurtured generations of enterprising and purposeful young women. The values, skills, aspiration and resilience instilled in the girls prepares them to respond to the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century and to make a positive difference in the world.
