As we flourish, we aspire,
As we aspire, we achieve,
Together, we are a family

St Mary’s has served the local community since 1863. Today we provide for children from Nursery to Year 6 (2-11). The school is voluntary aided Church of England school and works closely with the governing body within a Christian framework to provide a high standard of teaching and learning in a nurturing and inclusive environment. Please telephone the school or call at the school office to find out details of our open days or arrange a time to speak to the Headteacher.

LOCAL NEWS

The Hornsey Food Bank

The Hornsey Food Bank continues to operate, now from the Methodist Church on Middle Lane. No need for a referral or vouchers, all welcome. Open on Thursdays 11am – 1pm. Click on the pdf for more information.

Walk/bike/scoot to school

Where possible, try to walk, bike or scoot to school each day. This is good for the environment and for the children too! If you have to drive, remember to park considerately for our neighbours (do not park over people’s drives) and turn your engines and radios off. Engine idling is a huge source of pollution which affects the climate and all our health.
