Open Day 2016
Open Day

What a great day we had!  The school was a hive of activity on Saturday 24th September when Year 5 and Year 6 students and their parents came to see what St. Mary’s has to offer.  The science show wowed our visitors and the Spanish tapas was a delicious hit.  Every department in school had planned activities to entertain and give a flavour of what life is like at St. Mary’s.

Geography – Castleton Fieldtrip

As part of their Controlled Assessment, Year 11 Geography students visited the honeypot site of Castleton in the Peak District.  During this time they conducted fieldwork which is used in class to form 25% of their GCSE grade.

Half of the students went on Thursday 15th September when it was clear blue skies and a stunning 25⁰C, unfortunately the other half weren’t treated to such nice weather on the Friday but were lucky enough that the rain stayed away.

St Mary’s Hit Record Results!

Students and staff are celebrating some excellent achievement with the release of GCSE results today.  The examination accountability system is changing and schools are to be judged on the progress each individual child makes and how the school has added value to that child’s education rather than just an attainment figure of 5A*-C.  Mr Dawson, commented “I would like to congratulate students for all their dedication and achievement.
