Coming Soon, a brand new looking School Website. 

We are hoping to have our new school website up and running by the end of Monday 8/6/20. 

Please be patient whilst we go through this transformation.

For example, On our mobile App you may come across links that reference a location on the new website which you can't access until Monday.

Don't worry the information is on our old website too!

"My child was always very happy at St Mary's..... she is in all the top sets at her High school and that is because of St Mary's" (Y6 Leavers' Survey 2016)


Welcome to St Mary's.

Welcome to our website. I think we have managed to make it quite practical and comprehensive but if there is something missing that you would find useful please let us know.


St Mary's Catholic Primary School has been in existence since 1846, making it one of the oldest educational institutions in the Diocese of Leeds and the Halifax area. We are proud of our Catholic heritage and consider this to be central to all we try to achieve with our pupils.


We want all our pupils to reach their full potential in every way, but we especially want them to know that God loves each of them as unique and special individuals. In partnership with parents, carers, parishioners and external agencies we know we can achieve these objectives.

    CURRENT SITUATION It goes without saying that these are absolutely exceptional times in our country’s history. The ‘normal’ has gone out of the window and nearly everything has to be dealt with on a totally different basis. Change is always hard, but at this time of extreme change we must look after each other and try to remain as positive as possible, especially for our beautiful children.
