Welcome to St Mary's

St. Mary's is a friendly, caring Church of England Aided, one-form entry Primary School in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

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 2013 and were pleased with our 'Good' outcome.

They said:

  • Pupils achieve well and make good progress in Mathematics and especially reading.
  • Children have a good start in the Early Years Foundations Stage because they benefit from good teaching and a stimulating environment.
  • Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs achieve at least as well as their peers because of the appropriately targeted support they receive.
We were very pleased with our recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist School (SIAMS) inspection where we were graded as 'good'. Please find the full report under the Key Information menu.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information.
