What says..

The brightest are stretched through a curriculum enriched with plenty of arts-related activities and sport. ‘We wanted to make teaching more relevant and incorporate risk taking and thinking independently.' We particularly loved the idea of year 5 book club with the head herself in her lovely, tranquil office accompanied by freshly baked cookies (it sounds so wonderfully Enid Blyton; we hope it’s accompanied by lashings of ginger beer)...

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Headmistress

Since September 2016, Harriet Connor-Earl BA (RE) from Brighton. In her late 30s, she is young for a head teacher - but definitely not green.

Special Education Needs

St Mary’s School has a thriving Learning Support Department. When a pupil is identified as having SEN, we take action to remove barriers to learning and put effective special educational needs provision in place. Quality First Teaching remains our first response in relation to the identification of SEN, but we also ensure that the child receives high quality additional support and interventions carefully matched to their needs. Pupils receive maximum support to develop and encourage their potential and specialist teachers offer small groups or individual 1:1 lessons. Through consultation with the form teacher and parents, a flexible strategy of support is formulated. A strong link between the school and the parents is encouraged and this partnership is seen as invaluable for the child’s continued development.
