St Mary's Hall was one of England's oldest schools for girls, founded in 1836 by the Revd. Henry Venn Elliott for the "daughters of poor clergy" in Brighton, Sussex (latterly East Sussex).

The main school buildings and Elliott House now house various departments of the Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. The Junior School now accommodates the Brighton College Pre-Preparatory Dept. The swimming pool is now Brighton Swimming Centre.

St Mary’s Hall Old Girls and former staff, all of whom are entitled to membership of St Mary’s Hall Association, (SMHA), entirely free of charge, now have this website, a Facebook Page and a Virtual Common Room for members to relax and chat.
