Headteacher's Welcome

St Mary’s is a successful Catholic school where we celebrate diversity and warmly welcome families from all faiths and backgrounds. We aim, at all times, to live out our mission to Pray – Learn – Love – Enjoy.  We hold the needs of the whole child at the heart of all that we do.  Academic achievement is very important to us but not in isolation and as such we nurture and develop the spiritual, sporting, musical, social, moral and emotional skills and talents in all children too.


We aim to equip our children for 21st century learning and life. We encourage resilience, the ability to reflect and adapt to the changing needs of the modern world, to think creatively, to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team and to act responsibly as global citizens.

Mrs Carol Scanlon
