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. We welcome visits from prospective families, in order to meet the children and staff and have a look around the school.

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.
