God shines within our hearts. Jesus walks by our side. The Holy Spirit gives us strength.

A Warm Welcome

Mrs Patricia Chapman, Headteacher

Welcome to Saint Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Saint Mary’s is a friendly community that aims to give every child the best possible start to their school lives. We aim to create an environment where children feel safe, happy, valued and where every child can learn effectively.

We have very high standards of behaviour and this helps us to create an atmosphere where children are challenged, motivated and take the first steps in becoming lifelong learners.

Ofsted said during their last visit in 2018: “Pupils behave in an exemplary fashion. They are polite and welcoming to each other and to visitors.”

Our Mission Statement

‘Our school is a little bit of heaven on earth. It is a Christ centered community where we are the people and Jesus is the love, the care and the courage.’ (Pupils)
