Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School

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.

I would like to thank you all for the lovely afternoon we had on Tuesday afternoon with St Mary’s School Choir.

The residents of Silverleigh Care Home had such a wonderful time. It was so lovely to spend time and sing together.

A special thank you from us to Mr Jacobs and the pupils who performed so well. The choir was absolutely stunning, you made many people very happy. Well done!
