Welcome from the Headteacher

Mr Owen Finnegan, Headteacher


Our school is a big family with strong parish and community links. Care and excellent standards of teaching and learning are hallmark statements of our school. At St Mary’s we aim to help children develop in their journey of faith in a positive learning environment and we place Jesus, His teachings and His values at the centre of what we do.


Our school motto is central to the school’s philosophy:  




We also believe that our school will make a valuable contribution to your children’s development. It is a secure and caring environment where children develop their many talents and we fully recognise the importance of educating the ‘whole’ child.   Academic excellence for all children is one of our goals but we also seek to nurture those special gifts which makes each child unique.  


Home/School/Parish links are also vital. We value the full contribution to school life that parents make and the support offered by our local parish. Together, we ensure that St. Mary’s remains a very special place.  


We hope you find this website valuable and it gives you a snapshot into life at St. Mary’s.
