Last night we welcomed hundreds of visitors to the school for our Secondary Transition Evening. Visitors were treated to some amazing performances by the talented students we have here, and a had chance to get a sense of what learning is like at St Mary’s across all subject areas.
Tours were lead by our students, and we had subject ambassadors in each area to talk to the Y6 students and their parents/carers about our work. Staff were also on hand to answer questions.
Our vision is that we are the rich soil in which seed flourish and roots grow and you got a real sense of how we help children in Y7 flourish into young adults in Y13. As one parent recently said:
“I highly recommend St. Mary’s both as a secondary school and a sixth form. 1 has graduated from 6th form and has a fantastic place at University. The other is currently on his GCSE journey and excelling. I personally cannot find fault with the staff or the level of education that is taught. It is of a high standard. The children are judged on their individual merit and their abilities, league tables( though they matter ) take 2nd place to each individuals aspirations. My children of completely different characters and academic strengths had 2 very different experiences.”
Whilst another said:
“We are looking forward to viewing the school on Thursday for our youngest son. Our eldest is in year 11 and he loves the school. We have been impressed with St Mary’s thus far and would recommend the school. We are hoping St Mary’s impresses our youngest on Thursday, as it is his choice to choose which secondary school he goes to, just like it was for his brother.”
