Academic Introduction

The education in which St Mary’s DSG believes is faith centred, holistic, relevant and rigorous. The academic curriculum forms only a part of the total curriculum, albeit the critical part. Preparing young ladies for the IEB Senior Certificate in Grade 12 is the first goal, and our matric results year after year speak to the quality of teaching, the engagement with the IEB on many levels, and the tradition of hard work amongst our students.

In tertiary institutions our “Old Girls” stand out in their preparedness for academic life. We are extremely proud of our academic traditions but more proud of the difference our “Daughters of the King” make in the lives of those around them as a result of their preparation for life. – The Revd Canon AW Paterson
