What Others Say About Us
A short Ofsted Inspection of St Mary’s in March 2017 was extremely positive and confirmed that St Mary’s Catholic Academy continues to be good. A copy of the full inspector’s letter is available in the link on the menu on this page The following quotes are taken from the body of the inspector’s letter:
- The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the inspection of your predecessor school.
- Pupils spoken to during the inspection showed great pride in their school and parents wholeheartedly appreciate the efforts made by staff.
- Comments from parents such as ‘The staff go above and beyond what is expected’ and ‘The staff clearly have the best interests of the children at heart’ were typical.
- Staff were equally positive; their comments portray a school where people are valued and supported. One member of staff put this very clearly: ‘Each and every pupil knows there are people in school who care deeply for them…who will go the extra mile for them…that is something of which I am incredibly proud.’
