History of St Mary’s School
The school was originally founded in 1824 in York Street, next to the parish church, and served a wide area until other local schools were built. An Infants’ schoolroom was added in 1888 but destroyed in an air raid in 1944. In 1969 it moved to a new building in Enford Street, and in 2000 a Nursery Class was added.

Our school provides a broad and balanced education for all our children; one which excites the children and helps them to develop a thirst for knowledge. We want every child to achieve as highly as they can, in all areas of learning and life enabling them to become proud citizens of our community.
Children are proud of their school and seek to make it a harmonious place for every member of the school community. We are very well supported by our parents in striving to provide our children with a safe, nurturing environment in which to learn.
The school has an active ‘Friends’ association that includes parents and staff. The Friends have worked hard in recent years to both fundraise for projects, including redeveloping our school library, and to encourage all parents to become involved in the school. Employees from some local businesses also volunteer on a regular basis; supporting children with their reading and learning about Maths and Science.
We have a strong relationship with our Church, St Mary’s Bryanston Square, with our church curate and youth worker leading weekly acts of worship and running prayer clubs in school for the children.
We are very proud of our whole school community, and we always enjoy welcoming visitors to St Mary’s.
