A Warm Welcome

Mr John Nish, Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of St Mary's Catholic Voluntary Academy in Marple Bridge. We hope that everything contained on our school website will tell you all you need to know about our happy and successful school.

As a school, we firmly believe that the child is at the heart of their learning and to this end, we work extremely hard to ensure that all pupils have equal opportunities to do the very best they can in a caring Catholic Christian environment.

Our Mission Statement

As Parents, Staff and Governors:

“We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We are prophets of a future not our own.” (Oscar Romero)

Inspired by the light of our Catholic Christian Faith, our school primarily aims to develop the whole child within a Christian community.
