Every Day is an Open Day

At St Mary's we recognise that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Children in our care thrive; developing curiosity about their world, a caring attitude to each other and the confidence and courage to feel that they can have a go.

Pascall stmarys 9542wWe are happy to show you and your child our school, talk you through the admissions procedure and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.  If you would like to arrange a visit please call us on 01666 502275. 

Another great way for you and your child to meet us and other parents and experience the school is to come to our toddler and baby group, St Mary's Saplings.  This runs every Wednesday from 1:45pm to 3pm. It is free and everyone is welcome. Please come and join us.
