A Warm Welcome

Mr Paul Ackers, Executive Headteacher

Welcome 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.

On the following pages you will be able to read our Mission Statement and what we stand for, find out ‘who’s who’ at St Mary’s, discover the latest school news through the link to our weekly Friday Bulletin, gain a view of all that is achieved in our busy school schedule, and learn lots more about St Mary’s. As part of the St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust, we belong to a family of schools working in partnership to support the faith, academic and social development of all our pupils.

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.
