A Level Performance Day

On Tuesday the 12th of September the A Level year 12 and 13 PE students visited the national cycling centre in Manchester. The students got the opportunity to cycle around the velodrome and the new BMX track whilst linking their performance to the A Level theory specification. Congratulations to George Bowers (year 12) who got the fastest time at the Velodrome and Will Garner (year 12) who proved to be very skillful on the BMX track.

Welcome to Year 7!

The Year 7s brought their biggest smiles to their first day at St. Mary’s. Despite the torrential rain they had a fabulous day; they met new friends and old, received their timetables, had three lessons and school dinner.

The students were quickly finding their way around and today were exemplary for our fire drill.

GCSE Results
GCSE Results 

Students, parents and staff at St Mary’s Catholic High School are celebrating achieving excellent results in their GCSEs.  This is the first time that students have sat the newly reformed GCSEs in Mathematic and English which are graded 9-1 rather than the traditional A*-G.  The new exams are significantly more challenging; controlled Assessment has been removed and there is more content with greater rigour.  The students have taken all of this in their stride and today marks the culmination of 5 year’s hard work before taking the next steps in their life.
