Welcome from the Head

Welcome to the website of St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy!

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.

Welcome Video

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.

From Nursery Class to Year Six, all our children and their families are a vital part of the school community, together with staff, governors and parishioners from St Mary’s Church (Marple Bridge) and Holy Spirit Church (Marple). I am delighted to be a part of it – and see it as a great privilege to be leading this vibrant place of learning!

Please read on and follow the various links – and remember to come back and visit the site frequently: it will change and evolve as St Mary’s continues to grow and develop.

With very best wishes to all our site visitors,

Mr Paul Ackers

Executive Headteacher
