Welcome Back!


There a few changes to staff this year. Mrs Rudd is our new Deputy Head teacher replacing Mrs O’Hara who had worked at Saint Mary’s since 1989! Miss Gilmore is our new teacher for Year 4. Mr Adamson now teaches in Year 6 as Mrs Kenyon was successfully appointed as Deputy Headteacher at Hayfield School. Mrs Haworth  also took retirement – looking far too young to do so -as our Reception teacher. That role has been taken up by Mrs Cochrane alongside Mrs Thorne-Marsh.

With the school numbers increasing year on year, we are now at 190, the largest total for decades. Let’s hope this year will be as successful and we build on our strengths as a Catholic school.


Mr S. D. Groarke
Head Teacher
