Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic High School, Leyland

Many thanks in showing an interest in St Mary’s for your child. We are a school that continues to thrive and build on the successes of recent years. At St Mary’s, we unashamedly set high standards and expect the very best of our pupils. In so doing, every child is given the opportunity to flourish and fulfil their God-given potential.

Although we are unable this year to run our traditional Open Evening I hope that the links below give you as full a picture as possible of what life is like at St Mary’s.

We have a calm and purposeful working environment, within modern and well-equipped buildings, and a rich extra-curricular provision. All of this combines to allow pupils the opportunity to excel. They are wonderfully supported by staff who are hard-working, caring and committed. In short, we are a community where all members are valued and respected.  Our Ofsted Inspection of January 2020 recognised our “caring ethos where pupils are keen to learn”.

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, allowing pupils to feel safe and have the confidence to develop their talents.

Thank you for considering St Mary’s Catholic High School for your child’s education. I hope these links give you an insight into why we are so proud of our school and the work we do here. In addition to this information, I would encourage any parents considering St Mary’s to visit our Facebook (@StMarysLeyland) or Twitter (@LeylandStMarys) pages for more details and regular updates. Of course feel free to contact us if you have any particular question and we will get back in touch as soon as possible.
