Catholic Ethos

Our Mission is to educate the young people entrusted to our care in the Catholic, Christian way that ensures that each one is valued and cared for and achieves the best of which they are capable.

Our Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to St. Mary’s Catholic High School.

We are a thriving and vibrant community, dedicated to ensuring that our pupils are given every opportunity to flourish and fulfil their God-given potential.

Calm and Purposeful

Here you will find a calm and purposeful working environment, with a rich extra-curricular provision, allowing pupils the opportunity to excel. They are wonderfully supported by staff who are hard-working, caring and committed.

The inspiration for all we do comes from our Catholic faith and is based on the Gospel values of love, honesty, respect and forgiveness. In so doing, we believe our Mission, which is to ‘let your light shine’, comes alive.
