About Us

The Maynard School is an independent day school For girls aged 4-18 (Year Reception - Year 13). With an expanding Junior School, an award winning headmistress and a surge of national recognition for its successes, it is true to say that The Maynard is thriving as one of the very best schools in the South West:


  • Top school in the South West in the Department for Education’s Performance tables
  • Ranked 17th in the country in the Department for Education’s Performance tables
  • Rated in The Telegraph’s top 10 best value independent schools in the country
  • Outstanding wellbeing and pastoral care
  • Excellence in Music and the Performing Arts
  • Numerous county, regional and England internationals across a broad spectrum of sport


An academically selective school, our students achieve outstanding public examination results year-on-year and league tables consistently place us as one of the highest performing schools in the South West. Girls and boys learn differently and we are experts in educating girls; our long history is testament to our ability to bring out the best in each and every one of them.


At The Maynard we believe that happiness is as important as outstanding results, and from the moment you walk through the door you can sense the warm, friendly atmosphere and witness the girls’ genuine enjoyment of and enthusiasm for learning. Our outstanding pastoral care and our team of dedicated, talented teachers mean that we can help each student to develop in her own way. Enjoyment of school is paramount, as happy students achieve great things both in and out of the classroom. Each individual is supported in whatever she wants to do, and in turn Maynard girls support each other and develop great friendships which last a lifetime. As well as having impressive exam results, students leave the school as confident, adaptable and independent young women, with a spirit of adventure and a desire to succeed.


The Maynard School is located in central Exeter with excellent transport links. Our school day runs from 8.40am – 3.55pm and we offer excellent wraparound care for all students from 8am to 5.30pm at no additional charge. We offer a wealth of extra-curricular activities which take place mainly during the extended lunch break, providing an important dimension to girls’ lives.
