Headteacher's Welcome


I would like to wish you a warm welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School.

I am delighted that you have decided to find out more about our school and hope you will find all that you need here on our website.

I have had the privilege of leading St Mary's since September 2017 and can testify to the fabulous school community that it is.

St Mary’s is a truly welcoming place, it wraps everyone up, takes them in and looks after them. The door is always open for our children, for parents and for our dedicated staff.

Deciding where to educate your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make as a parent. It is where they will cultivate their first friendships, develop independence and begin their academic journey. You need to feel confident and comfortable that the school you choose to send your child to loves, challenges and supports your child in the way that you do, and that they will do everything that they can to ensure that your child becomes all that they are capable of being.

At our school children always come first. We believe that it is our role to give the children the skills they need to be resilient and ambitious individuals that can go out into the wider world and achieve great things. 

At St Mary’s we will ensure that your child achieves their potential academically and pastorally, through a range of classwork and exciting extra-curricular activity. Our staff will work in partnership with you, ensuring that your child’s engagement in education continues both in school and outside of school.

Our Catholic ethos permeates throughout the school and our children uphold these values in everything that they do. We are also very welcoming of children of other faiths, and of none, and celebrate a diverse range of faiths and cultural festivals throughout the year. 

I feel so fortunate to be the headteacher here, supporting and empowering others to be their best. Our pupils are so full of energy, they have a thirst, a passion, they want to learn and I am incredibly proud to help them to be the best they can be. 

If you would like to find out more about our school, please contact our school office to book a tour.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
