Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to St. Mary's College: we are a thriving community which places a high value on outstanding academic achievement and all-round personal development, as well as our central emphasis as a Catholic school which welcomes boys and girls of all faiths.  


Our school is built on strong values which emphasise the importance of caring for others and striving for excellence in all we do. At St. Mary’s our pupils are challenged to achieve, taught a sense of what is right, encouraged to show initiative, nurtured in spiritual growth and shown the importance of teamwork. Our rich programme of extra-curricular activities equips our pupils with the skills and values which will guide and support them throughout their lives. 


We hope that you find this site informative and will be sufficiently attracted by its contents to come and visit us for a taste of life at St. Mary's: visitors remark upon the special atmosphere at our school and the warm welcome offered by our pupils and staff.

Success at St. Mary's is measured by much more than examination results: achievement encompasses music, sport, initiatives for others as well as the spiritual growth of all members of our community.  I invite you to visit us and experience for yourself the essence of St. Mary's.

Mr Michael Kennedy, BSc, MA
