A message from the Headmistress

Welcome to The Maynard School! As the second oldest girls’ school in the country, we pride ourselves on being experts in educating girls and encourage them to carve successful futures for themselves and create everlasting friendships and enduring, wonderful memories.


Set in a leafy area of central Exeter, we are the leading independent day school for girls aged 4 -18 in the South West. Steeped in a rich history dating back to 1658, The Maynard is so much more than a top academic school. At its core, it is an outstanding school that has deep rooted values and a clear moral purpose and the wellbeing of the girls is given same attention as academic achievement. Over the years we have built an outstanding reputation for excellence in the Arts, Music and Sport whilst our pastoral care is widely regarded as second to none.


The years spent at school should be an exciting, stimulating and fun packed journey that instills a lifelong love of learning and a confidence to take on every new adventure. We take the student voice seriously and encourage their ideas and creativity. Lessons are challenging, innovative and progressive with a wide range of engaging pedagogy and our timetable is packed with trips, activities and workshops to be enjoyed by the whole school. But we take our greatest pride from the happy, ambitious and successful students with whom we have the pleasure to work with each day!


There are no glass ceilings at The Maynard, and we will continue to strive to open up the wondrous global opportunities for the young women of the 21st century.
