About Us

​​Welcome to St Mary’s College, Ipswich

St Mary’s College is the only Catholic, all girls’ secondary College in Ipswich and the greater western corridor. We offer all young women a quality, affordable, well-rounded education, helping them to become confident young women of compassion and integrity.

All girls are welcome at St Mary’s College. We are a community, offering a safe, nurturing and supportive environment to all of our students and their families. Our relatively small size helps to promote this sense of belonging, as does our vertical Pastoral Care System.

Working in partnership with parents and caregivers, St Mary’s College provides our students:

  • An education tailored specifically to girls, giving them opportunities to develop and excel.
  • A culture of high expectations, encouraging individual success with varied pathways to cater for every student.​
  • Opportunities for students to extend themselves beyond the classroom, with an extensive extra-curricular program including cultural, sporting and mission activities.
  • A community that lives out the Catholic mission and values with a focus on social justice and outreach to others.

Situated on the hill at Woodend, St Mary's College is part of the Catholic precinct that provides educational opportuntiies from Prep to Year 12. The precinct is well serviced by public transport.
