Year 7 Achievement

We were so #Proud to award so many Year 7 with their Bronze and Silver awards at our recent Achievement Assemblies. Students are looking very smart wearing their badges with pride. History Hero and Maths Awards were also made. What a talented and hard working bunch they are!

A Christmas Carol

Christmas festivities came early for 72 of St Mary’s Year 11 English Students.  Bolton’s Octagon Theatre’s most recent production was one that our pupils are quite familiar with! 'A Christmas Carol', Charles Dickens’ famous festive novel, gave an outstanding performance on Friday 1st December, one which the Year 11’s will, “honour in their hearts and keep it all the year!”

Well done to the 72 pupils who recently completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. As a school we achieved a 95% completion rate this year which was way above the national average of 50%. We would like to say a huge thank you to pupils who completed this year and you are all absolute credits to the school. We hope you will continue your DofE journey with us when you enter Sixth form.

Sixth Form Taster Day

On Friday 24th November our Year 11 students had the unique opportunity to sample life as a sixth form student at St. Mary’s. They chose five subjects to try from the wide range of AS Levels and vocational courses that we offer. Staff delivered sample lessons from their course to ensure students could find out what the subject involved and the areas they would study if they picked this course next year.
