Thank you for visiting our school website and taking an interest in St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
We hope that our website will give you a clear picture of our school, its life, ethos and expectations. For our current parents and pupils, we hope that the activities and events highlighted in this website will keep you informed about the many things going on.
St Mary’s is a happy, welcoming Catholic primary school which puts children at the heart of what we do. We are located in Axminster within the Diocese of Plymouth. Almost all our children live within walking distance of the school and reflect our vibrant and supportive local community. We have strong and developing links with St. Mary’s Church and are part of an extensive and supportive group of Catholic schools working as part of Plymouth CAST, a Multi-Academy Trust.
We are extremely proud of our school and believe that we offer a warm and caring environment in which to learn. We see all our children as precious and unique, and we believe that it is by working together within the school’s Catholic, Christian context that we can best nurture their talents, skills and personalities.
Our children are well-motivated and enjoy their learning. They are keen to take part in after-school clubs such as dance, art, music, gym, rounders, cricket and homework. Children are also invited to learn a musical instrument and take part in a string orchestra. Indeed, St Mary’s is highly regarded, both locally and further afield, for its choir and orchestra. We also place a high value on physical education and take part in many inter-school competitions and sporting events.
Our staff are committed to ensuring that every child in our school has access to the best possible standard of education. We believe that the most important aspect of our work is the teaching and learning that happens in every classroom, day-in and day-out. Therefore, our work is aimed at supporting first-class teaching and ensuring excellent learning outcomes.
Why not come and see our wonderful school for yourselves. Please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
We look forward to meeting you at St Mary’s very soon.
