How to apply for a place at St Mary's

We fully understand that getting the right school for your child is one of the most important and stressful decisions you need to make, therefore we try to make the process as easy and stress free as possible. The process is managed by Mrs Tait the school office manager. Once you make contact with us she will organise everything, including getting visits timetabled and allocating a key worker for your child in the class they are going to join.

Hopefully everything you need is below, but any questions please just contact us.

Starting St Mary's

During the transition period your child is designated a key worker in the class to manage friendships and routines, but also give you a port of call for any questions you may have during this stressful time. Never be afraid to ask a question, we have an open door policy and are always happy to help.
