The community of Mount St Mary’s Catholic High School is called to develop the full potential of each community member spiritually, academically, socially and physically and to create a safe, happy and caring school where all community members are valued highly and equally, remembering that we are stronger together.

Excellence in Pupil Development Award 

At Mount St. Mary’s we educate the individual for the benefit of all. The school ensures individual achievement and personal growth whilst providing extensive opportunities to develop pupil’s skills, talents and character. As a school we are working towards an Excellence in Pupil Development Award which reflects our aim of preparing pupil’s for life beyond Mount St. Mary’s. The award focuses on pupil’s personal development skills and how education helps to prepare for life in an increasingly complex world. Gaining this award will verify the work we do at Mount St Mary’s ensuring young people are equipped with the personal skills and knowledge to manage risk and setbacks in their lives, as well as enhancing their wellbeing.

Staff – CPD

Our aim is that every single student is safe and happy, receives good teaching and achieves their full potential. Ours is truly comprehensive and integrated school which takes into account the strengths of each individual child and allows them to progress as rapidly as possible.

We recognise and respect the learning needs of all our children and support the needs of those who have difficulties, which may act as a barrier to their learning. All our students have maximum access to the National Curriculum and can benefit from before and after-school activities, intensive literacy and numeracy support either in or out of the classroom.

The welfare of all our students is cared for by their head of year and form tutor and in mixed ability form groups.

We recognise and build on the positive achievement a student makes.

As part of our personalised learning programme we provide extra support and guidance for our children.
