St Mary's the Mount
Catholic Primary School
A welcome message from the Parish Priest and Chair of Governors
I welcome parents who have chosen to send their children to St. Mary's the Mount Catholic School. This School has been built by, and is owned by, the Catholic community. The reason we have our own school is not so that religious lessons can be taught, but rather that there can be a Catholic atmosphere of love for God and for one another throughout the School day no matter what subject is being taught, and in time of recreation, too.
We treasure this atmosphere for our children even though we have to pay generously for it. May the experience of a Catholic School remain with our children throughout their lives.
A welcome message from the Head Teacher
For many years St. Mary's the Mount has been recognised as an outstanding school. As a school and parish community we take pride in our high standards of attainment and discipline. We value, respect and nurture the God given gifts and talents that each child brings to share with our school community.
We encourage the children to become independent, hardworking, courteous and friendly. This is achieved through the dedication and commitment of our staff and Governing Body and our strong partnership with parents. It is through this strong home/school partnership that we strive to provide an excellent spiritual, academic and social education for each child.
The school is also part of a wider community; that of the Parish of St. Mary's the Mount. St. Mary's the Mount Church, situated in Glebe Street, is of historical significance because it was the first Catholic Church to be built in this part of the Midlands after the Reformation. The Church is now a Grade 11 listed building. It is through the support and example of the Parish that we lead children closer to understanding their roles and responsibilities. It is here that each family is welcomed to be a part of our worshipping community.
