St. Mary's gives children the 'Freedom to fly'!

At St Mary's we celebrate the individual. We pride ourselves on our warm, inclusive environment.

As a traditional small village school, our size means that we know every child personally, can tailor their education to suit them, nurture them and keep them safe.

Our children make strong friendships and feel part of our Mill Bank family. We teach them to be polite and respectful to others and to live by the Christian values Jesus taught us. Most of all we teach them to think independently and to feel comfortable with who they are.

We believe that our children will only succeed academically if they enjoy learning. Our staff endeavour to create inspirational opportunities to learn, in order to allow every child to achieve and ultimately excel in all areas of the curriculum.

St Mary's is proud of its Christian heritage. We retain close links with the church at Cottonstones and we strongly believe in educating children in the core Christian values. We encourage honesty and respect for others and we expect our children to have a good sense of right and wrong.

We hope you will find our website informative. Should you need any more information or you would like to look around our school, please contact us.
