All Catholic schools are rooted in Christ, who is to be the centre of school life.
Gospel values and the teachings of the Catholic Church are integrated into every aspect of learning, teaching and the totality of life at St Mary's.
Our classes are named for saints; each class has researched their saint, and celebrates their saint's feast day by wearing home clothes and sharing an afternoon treat of party food.

The whole school celebrates the 1st May with a procession and donation of flowers to Mary. These flowers are subsequently taken by some children (with staff) to local care homes.
