Welcome to St Mary's Catholic High School Leyland

St Mary's Catholic High School, Leyland

St Mary's Catholic High School has gone through a great transformation in a short space of time. The necessity to reflect, innovate and change has brought about high performance, sustained progress and a desire among all stakeholders to become the very best that we can be. Whilst the building presents a wonderful environment for education, we know that what really matters is exciting teaching that delivers progress in learning. We have unequivocal high expectations in terms of behaviour and our focus on spiritual development for children is very beneficial to young people growing up in a rapidly changing world.



Y11 Leavers Service

Monday 20 May

Dear Parent / Carer, 

Reminder: Year 11 Leavers’ Mass 

To allow all staff and Year 11 pupils to celebrate together at the end of their five years at St Mary’s Catholic High School, we will close for Years 7 to 10 at 1:45 pm on Thursday, 23rd May and we have arranged for the buses to come to school for that time. 

The Leavers’ Mass is a long established tradition and will be a wonderful occasion for staff and students to wish each other ‘good luck’ and bid farewell.  This year, our Leavers’ Mass will be celebrated by one of our parish priests on Thursday, 23rd May 2019 at 2:00 pm here at school.  

Please hold our Year 11 pupils in your prayers as they complete their very important GCSE examinations and make their next steps in what we hope will be an incredible life’s journey for each of them.

Yours sincerely,                                                                     

Mr P Thompson (Headteacher) & Anthony Cave (Chaplain)
