St Mary's was last inspected under the Section 48 regulations on 28th & 29th June 2016. The report of the inspection is produced for the Archbishop of Liverpool (Code of Canon Law 804 and 806) and for the governors of the school. The inspectors are members of the Christian Education Department and their associates approved by the Archbishop of Liverpool for this purpose. In a similar way to Ofsted inspections, schools are graded as either Outstanding (1), Good (2), Requires Improvement (3) or Inadequate (4).

In this inspection St Mary's was judged as a Good school.  Our own self-evaluation preceding any inspection is very searching and necessarily self critical for we hold ourselves to very high standards. As a result of the inspection, a new plan for further improvement was formed and we are confident that our next inspection, under Section 48 regulations, will be even stronger.
