“Incredibly supportive and welcoming environment, has undoubtedly modelled excellent teaching practices that I will take on in my career. St. Mary’s supports a metacognitive approach to pedagogical learning...5 Stars”

“My time at St. Mary’s has been fantastic. I really enjoyed being part of the school and feeling really welcome from day one. The teachers are encouraging and supportive, they are happy to trust our judgement and allow us to take full responsibility from the outset - this has been a massive benefit in becoming settled and confident teaching. The expertise shared by all staff members is priceless and everyone is keen to help and support our training.”

“I decided to go into teaching as after I had finished my degree I wasn’t ready to stop learning. It was the best decision I have ever made. My experience of training at St. Mary’s has been fantastic; a great school, supportive staff and amazing mentors. I have learnt so much during my time here, gained new skills and developed my teaching in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere.”
