St Mary’s is a GOOD school
When Ofsted visited in October 2023 they graded the whole school as GOOD. This is a testament to the hard work of the staff, students, governors and parents/carers over the last four years to achieve this and is a fair recognition of our standards.
Do not forget that St Mary’s 6th form, and Personal Development, were both graded GOOD in 2019 as well. If you are considering a place in the 6th form at St Mary’s, our standards have been high in that area for well over five years now and this second grading of GOOD indicates a rich and successful experience for the young people in the 6th form.
Please take a couple of minutes to watch the video and hear what our Head Teacher, Nicholas Simms, has to say about the report and what it means for your child, whether they attend St Mary’s now, or whether you are considering us for a place in the future.
A Warm Welcome To St Mary’s
At St Mary’s you will always find a welcome that is built on a strong Christian ethos and excellent relationships between adults and students.
Our vision, as a school with a Christian ethos, is founded on The Parable of the Sower (Mark 4: 3-9), where Through God’s love, we are the rich soil where seeds flourish and roots grow
This is the foundation of our motto, Everyone is equal: everyone deserves the best.
