Duke of Edinburgh

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award

We are delighted that our first cohort of students have passed their bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition.  Students had to use their navigation and survival skills to independently travel across a challenging route that lasted two days.  Students had to set up camp, cook their own meals, pack their own equipment and strategically plan their route completely unassisted.

Parental Support

Year 8 and 9 Parental Support Evening

Our thanks to all of the parents of Year 8 and 9 students who attended the Parental Support Evening on Tuesday 22nd September.

There were two presentations for each year group; one focusing on the changes post-Ofsted and the exam changes facing KS3 students as they move in to KS4 and one focusing on the changes that students will go through as they mature into young adults and how parents can support them through those times.

IMAX Cinema Visit

Everest IMAX Cinema Visit

A group of Year 9 Geography students enjoyed a visit to the Trafford Centre this week to watch the new film, 'Everest'. This links with our exciting topic, 'Impossible Places' and provided an amazing insight into the dangers and challenges faced by climbers. It allowed students to visualise this incredible mountain and develop an understanding of one of the most extreme environments on the planet. Thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Open Day

Open Day

What a great day we had!  The sun was shining again for our annual Open Day.  The school was a hive of activity on Saturday 26th September when Year 5 and Year 6 students and their parents came to see what St. Mary’s has to offer.  The science show wowed our visitors and the Spanish tapas was a delicious hit – not a scrap left at the end of the day!  Every department in school had planned activities to entertain and give a flavour of what life is like at St. Mary’s.
