{'lang': , 'extract': "

St Mary's School is an independent day and boarding school in Calne, Wiltshire for girls aged 11 to 18. It is full boarding or day. The boarders usually go home roughly once a month, some more than that. The school is a registered charity. St Mary's Calne is the top performing independent school in the South West, ranked by 2017 examination results published in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2018, 'Parent Power' and ranks in the top 3 best girls' boarding schools (based on A*-A grades in A Levels, 2017) in the Education Advisers' Best UK Schools list. St Mary's Calne's Science Department is also one of just 10 schools in the UK to be awarded the Platinum Science Mark (and the first independent school in the UK to achieve this accolade). \nThe school recently completed a £10.5\xa0million boarding refurbishment programme (the new Lower Sixth Form House won the 2016 West of England LABC Building Excellence awards for Best Educational Building) and a new, multi-million pound sports complex is being built (to be completed in April 2018). In the 2017 ISI report, the school received a double 'excellent' – the highest possible grade – and the pupils consistently achieve outstanding examination results (90% of 2017 Leavers gained places at their first-choice university, these include top universities in the UK, USA and other destinations). In figures published in January 2017 by the Department for Education (DfE) regarding 2016 A Level results, St Mary's Calne got the top score for its 'value added' – that is how much progress students who studied A Levels made between the end of Key Stage 4 and the end of their A Level studies, compared to similar students across England. St Mary's Calne scored 'well above the national average', to be in the elite group of only 4% of schools in England with this value added score. (DfE school comparison chart can be found here: https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/) In A Level league tables published by The Telegraph in January 2017 (based on DfE figures for 2016 A Level results) St Mary's Calne was the top performing school in the Region (out of 32 schools). Alongside the academic curriculum, St Mary's Calne offers a superb breadth of opportunities in Sport, Music, Drama and Art and an extensive extra-curricular programme ('Pupils excel in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities' – ISI Report, 2017).\n
