St Mary’s School is very blessed to be in a central location in Loughborough. This enables the school to be part of a fantastic Catholic community, with the Church of St Mary’s right at our doorstep and part of a wider community which includes the university, local library and a wide range of schools. We have made fantastic links with all parts of the community and look forward to strengthening these.
St Mary’s School has enjoyed the strong parish links with St Mary’s church. Please do visit the school and have a look at our collective worship folder to see the partnership activities we have with the church, led by our very dedicated staff and supported wonderfully by the Parish priest Fr Paul and by Fr Simon.
We have benefitted greatly from the University of Loughborough links. University students on the ‘Right to Read’ project, come into school to read with the children weekly and sport’s coaches offer clubs at lunchtime and after school. Our Year Six class visit the University, to see the facilities on offer and many students volunteer at school, with a view to becoming a teacher or teaching assistant.
St Mary’s School converted to an academy as part of the Blessed Cyprian Tansi Catholic Academy Trust. From September 2018, the school will be a part of the St Thomas Aquinas Multi-Academy Trust, with all 22 Catholic schools in Leicestershire.
