Welcome to St Mary's Catholic High School Leyland

St Mary's Catholic High School, Leyland

St Mary's Catholic High School has gone through a great transformation in a short space of time. The necessity to reflect, innovate and change has brought about high performance, sustained progress and a desire among all stakeholders to become the very best that we can be. Whilst the building presents a wonderful environment for education, we know that what really matters is exciting teaching that delivers progress in learning. We have unequivocal high expectations in terms of behaviour and our focus on spiritual development for children is very beneficial to young people growing up in a rapidly changing world.

Christmas Jumper Day 2018

Tuesday 4 December


Dear Parent / Carer, 

Christmas Jumper Day – 14 December 2018 

As we journey through Advent, it is the perfect opportunity to reflect on our school nominated charities and raise a bit more money for them; but have fun at the same time! 

To spread the ‘Joy and Peace of Christmas’, I would like to invite your son / daughter to wear a festive Christmas jumper on Friday, 14th December 2018.  This would replace the school jumper for that day only.  Should your son / daughter wish to participate, they are encouraged to bring £1 in on that day and to give the money to their form tutor.  All money raised will be divided equally between the charities CAFOD and Nugent. 

If your son / daughter does not wish to participate in this event, they can come to school in their usual School uniform and they will not be charged £1. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you and your son / daughter for the donations that you have made throughout the year to support our charity events. 

May I be the first of many to wish you, your family and friends a very peaceful Christmas.  May this Christmas season fill your home with joy, your hearts with love and your life with laughter. 

May the Lord Our God bless you all. 

Yours sincerely,  

Anthony Cave

School Lay Chaplain.
