Head’s Welcome

Head's Welcome

St Marie’s is a wonderfully welcoming Catholic school, where children from a wide variety of backgrounds come together to learn, grow and flourish in a supportive, nurturing community.

At St Marie’s, we take immense pride in fostering a collaborative community where everyone—staff, parents, carers, pupils, and governors—actively contributes to the development of each child. Our mission is to provide a range of exciting and captivating opportunities that ensure a high-quality education and instil a lifelong love for learning, empowering our students to succeed not only in secondary school but also in their adult lives.

As of September 1st, 2022, we joined St Clare’s Multi Academy Trust, one of the two new Catholic trusts in the Diocese of Hallam. This partnership aligns with the vision of the Bishop of Hallam, aiming to create high-achieving Catholic MATs with a strong moral purpose, ensuring the best possible experiences for all students, with a particular focus on those who are most vulnerable.

At St Marie’s, we cultivate a Christian community where the Gospel values of truth, justice, love, peace, and forgiveness are at the core of everything we do. These values inspire and challenge us daily, as we strive to ensure they permeate all aspects of school life. We prioritise prayer and worship, providing our children with a profound understanding of Jesus’ teachings and the importance of love and respect for all, fostering positive behaviour and attitudes.

We warmly invite prospective families to visit our school, as it offers an opportunity to celebrate our achievements together. During your visit, you’ll have the chance to meet our enthusiastic students, dedicated staff, and experience the genuine spirit and ethos that define St Marie’s School.

As the Head Teacher, I am committed to creating an environment where every child thrives, emerges as a satisfied and stimulated young individual, full of curiosity for knowledge and eagerness for life.

We look forward to welcoming you to our St Marie’s family!

Mr. John Fernandes
Head Teacher
