What the school offers its staff

  • St Mary’s is a very successful and oversubscribed Catholic Secondary School. Our most recent Ofsted inspection judged St Mary’s to be ‘Outstanding across all categories describing parents’ and pupils’ experiences of the school as ‘overwhelmingly positive’, and highlighting the ‘highest expectations’ for teaching, learning and behaviour. Attainment and progress at the end of Key Stage 4 are consistently strong and significantly above local and national averages. Our academic results see us regularly placed in the top 10% of all schools nationally.

Our Section 48 Inspection in March 2019 rated St Mary’s as ‘Excellent’ for all key judgements. The school is a truly cohesive community which reflects Gospel values and pupils feel highly valued for everything they achieve.

We are a very close knit and caring community situated in a small village just outside of Hereford and we enjoy a beautiful rural environment. As a school we are forward thinking, innovative and dynamic in our approach to teaching and learning and we have excellent support from both Governors and parents. We are very proud of our caring and inclusive reputation and have a strong team of professionals committed to developing and delivering a rich learning experience for all our pupils. We look forward to welcoming you into our team as we seek to maintain the highest standards of provision and support for our pupils.
