Welcome to St. Mary's

We have a strong reputation locally for our distinctive Christian ethos and our commitment to inclusion. We take pride in the fact that our pupils are confident, considerate and inspired by our Christian ethos to make a positive difference in the world.


The adults that work in our school have a passion for learning and work hard to ensure that every child has a fantastic start to their learning journey. At St. Mary's we believe in developing a life-long love for learning. Our pupils are provided with a wide range of learning opportunities that enable them to become young people equipped with the skills, attitudes and values to lead a happy and successful life.


We were last inspected by Ofsted in March 2017 and were pleased with our 'Good' outcome.

They said: "You and your team make sure the school has a friendly, welcoming and hardworking atmosphere which supports pupils’ good behaviour. Pupils are keen to do well and work hard. They behave well during lessons, playtimes and when moving around school. They greet visitors politely and are kind to each other.Please see the full report under the 'Key Information' tab.


We were also very pleased with our last Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist School (SIAMS) inspection where we were graded as 'Good'. You will find the full report under Key Information.
