Where Everyone's Welcome

Our Catholic Life is all embracing, open and welcoming and inviting everyone to flourish in an environment and culture of equality

Lay Chaplain, Inclusion Support, Well-being and Safeguarding DSO


At St Mary’s we embrace and welcome students of all faiths into our caring and inclusive community. As a strong family Catholic school with close relationships between staff and students, we believe that diversity enriches our learning environment and fosters a sense of understanding and acceptance.

Our core Catholic values are centred around creating a safe space where everyone feels respected, valued and supported on their educational journey. By cultivating an atmosphere of empathy, compassion and open mindedness, we strive to empower our students to grow in confidence and courage. We encourage them to explore their individual beliefs, express themselves authentically, and engage in meaningful conversations that promote mutual understanding and tolerance.

Our school community is dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that enables students to achieve their full potential, academically, emotionally and spiritually. We firmly believe that by embracing the uniqueness of each student, we create a thriving community where everyone can flourish.
