Our team

Our teachers are committed to an education that reflects individual needs.

Our team of Sixth Form teachers recognise that at St Mary's, we offer more than a one-size-fits-all approach to education.

Here, teachers guide students through their educational journey and are dedicated to nurturing new talents and to opening doors to creativity, self-development, and new friendships. They are highly qualified and enthusiastic, and include graduates from leading universities as well as staff members who have indispensable non-teaching experience.

Each member of staff provides a strong moral and spiritual framwork for our students, exemplifying our school aims and values of integrity, justice and respect.

We walk alongside our parents, valuing their role as the first educator of their child and create a learning environment of love, hope and joy based on Gospel values in which individuals are cherished and genuine relationships are nurtured.
