St Mary's School

"The children are at the heart of everything we do".


Headteacher’s Welcome

As the Headteacher of Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School, I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our school.

The aims of the Governors, staff and myself are to create an environment that will ensure that your child will progress academically, socially and personally to reach their full potential.

We value the support and co-operation of parents, and view the education of each child as a partnership between home, school and our parishes. By working together, we can achieve the very best for all our children.

We are very proud of our school, its Catholic ethos and its excellent reputation within the local community, and we expect the highest standards from all our pupils in everything they do. All staff are committed to ensuring your child’s time with us is both happy and successful and we look forward to celebrating each and every child’s achievements.

Saint Mary’s has a long tradition of providing Catholic education on the Isle of Man and has richly influenced the lives of many young children who have taken away many special memories of their time here.
Our school is an ever-changing place and this site provides an insight into the current phase of its journey in serving the wonderful pupils entrusted to us.I hope you enjoy browsing through the various pages and can find all you need. However, if you would like further information or to visit Saint Mary’s, you are more than welcome to contact us.

Mr Short
