Year 7 Information for Entry September 2021


Unfortunately, due to coronavirus, we were not able to hold a physical open evening this year as would normally. This is the same for all the local secondary schools. To get a feel for what life is like for students at St Mary’s Catholic School, we have created a short film for Prospective Students and Parents to view. Please click here to view our film:  Year 7  September Entry 2021 

We realise this isn’t quite the same as being able to look around the school in person and talk to our staff and students, but hopefully it will give you a sense of our values, aims and wonderful school community. Choosing a secondary school is an important decision and I hope that by watching our video and reading our Ofsted report from 2017, you will be impressed by the ‘excellence of all’ we provide at St Mary’s Catholic School and will want to be a part of our community next year. 

Kind regards,


Andrew Celano
