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 busy and varied life of our school community.
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. Our children 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 each one of our children as precious and unique individuals, 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.
Our staff are committed to ensuring that every child in our school has access to the best possible standard of education and experience so that each day they move closer to being the skilled and rounded adults who will be able to live fulfilling adult lives, with the skills and desire to make a difference.
Children are keen to take part in after-school clubs such as art, music, gymnastics, cross country, multi skills and tag rugby. 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.
We are a very hard working and committed community of adults and children. We are working all of the time to offer wider experiences at a high standard.
We also have lots of outside play space, including a field, two playgrounds, a forest school area and our daily mile all weather running track.
See the 'St Mary's 2021 ' powerpoint below for more details about our school.
Why not come and see our wonderful school for yourselves. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
We look forward to meeting you at St Mary’s very soon.
