Over 120 students were joined by staff and governors at the Bolton Whites Hotel last Friday to celebrate the end of two years in the sixth form at St. Mary’s. As usual, the students looked fantastic and luckily the rain stopped long enough for them to get on coaches at college. The three course meal was followed by a number speeches. Mr Robinson thanked the students for their hard work and the staff for supporting them.

Student Leader Training

Monday the 4th of July saw the first Student Leader training session take place. Students learnt about the different types of leadership style and explored scenarios which tested their skills to the limit! This is the first step to equip the students for their roles as leaders in school both for the Prom Committee (making plans for the next school prom including themes, colour schemes and menu choices) and the wider Student Leader team (responsible for representing the school throughout the year, charity and fundraising).

Welcome Day and Evening

What a wonderful Welcome Day and Evening we have just had.

Our Year 6s arrived bright and ready to work and they got so much from today. We were really proud of the way that they got "stuck in" to tasks and rose to the challenge of meeting new people and making new friends.  They have found their way around, had lunch and got to know their tutor.  This evening they have seen our talented Year 7 and 8s in their Annie performance and had the opportunity to introduce their tutor to their parents.
