Prospective Parents

Welcome to our page for prospective parents. On this page, we aim to collate all the information you will need when considering applying to our school.

Headteacher Welcome

I would like to extend an invitation to all prospective parents to experience some of what our school can offer your child and family.  At St. Mary’s we pride ourselves on our sense of community and seeing the school as a family.  As such, we would usually be warmly inviting and actively encouraging prospective parents to come and look around our school.  Unfortunately, due to the restrictions of COVID-19, we are unable to open our doors as we normally would.  However, we have planned a comprehensive package of information to support prospective parents with their decision-making.

Our mission statement is ‘Journeying, in the light of Christ… together, we live and learn’.  Below are series of short videos, we hope will give you a sense of how we live out our mission statement and put it into action.  

In addition to this, there are four different dates when you can join me and key members of the staff team via Zoom for a talk about St. Mary’s and have a chance to ask any questions you may have. 

Please email or phone 0114 2848488 to request a Zoom link for your selected date and to pass on any questions you would like answering in the meeting.

Following these meetings, the Reception class team will be available for individual meetings via Zoom or telephone to answer any further questions you may have.

In the meantime, our website and Twitter feed - @StMaryHighGreen – are great ways to find out more about the daily life of our school.

Here at St. Mary’s, we understand that the decision you are about to make can be a difficult one and we would like to support parents in having the right information to make a decision that best suits the needs of your child and family.

We look forward to meeting you and your family and sharing our wonderful school with you.

With every good wish,

Alex Healy (Headteacher)
