Testimonial from the Acting Headteacher

Mrs S Oakes

St Mary’s has been educating children from it’s community since 1832 and is part of the Heavenfield Partnership which is a vibrant evangelising community. In our school we seek to create an inclusive community where everybody is valued and nurtured. People routinely comment on the friendly atmosphere that exists in the school but they also notice that it has a great sense of purpose. At St Mary’s we are committed to the achievement of every single child regardless of his or her ability. I am proud to say that our children not only develop a growth mindset but make exceptional progress from their starting points and achieve impressive results as children progress through the Federation.
