I am delighted to welcome you to St Mary’s. Choosing a secondary school is a very important decision for all families. We want to share with you as much as we can about our school, to help you to make an informed choice. We think St Mary’s is an excellent choice of secondary school but to help you to determine this for yourselves, I encourage you to visit the school, meet the staff and the students, view our outstanding facilities and learn more about the excellent, all-round education that we offer.

I also strongly recommend that you talk to families whose children currently attend St Mary’s. I am sure that they will speak very positively about their experiences. You may also like to read inspection reports from Ofsted and the Diocese which judge the school as Outstanding.

This website, includes further useful information such as our Newsletters which highlight many of our students’ achievements. All of these suggestions will, I hope, help you get a good feel for the school.
