Requests for student absence during term time
Applications to take students out of school during term time (see dates here) are strongly discouraged and are only approved by prior application to the Headteacher in exceptional or emergency circumstances to a maximum of 10 days. Failure to request absence, not to comply with the Headteacher’s decision or exceeding any agreed leave period may result in a Fixed Penalty Notice being issued. Please see the letter here and an updated letter here for more information. An application form is available here or from the school office.

Nelson Mandela Children's Fund UK would like to thank St Mary's CE High School for taking part in our mobile phone recycling campaign. The school encouraged students and staff who are getting new phones to generously donate their old ones.

The funds raised from the phones they collected will go to our latest project, which is to build the Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital. Many thanks to everyone who donated.

School Uniform
Please note that school polo shirts can now be worn. For further information regarding our uniform policy and expectations, please refer to your child's diary or the information pack given to you when your child began attending the school. You may also contact the school directly. Failure to comply will lead to school sanctions.
 
Concerns raised by the police over the inappropriate use of social media
Please see this letter home regarding the matter.  

Free School Meals online checking service
You can quickly and easily check if your child is entitled to receive Free School Meals by using this website www.fsm.lgfl.net . After entering a few essential details, the online application process links to the Department for Education system and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify the school.
We would like to encourage parents to apply and take advantage of free school meals while at the same time increasing the benefit to schools from Pupil Premium funding, a substantial amount of which goes unclaimed. You do not need to use this service if your child already receives Free School Meals.
  
Admissions
Our school will close in July 2016. As a result, we currently only have Years 10 and 11 and a small Year 13 cohort. We can only accept applications for Years 10 and 11 - for students born between 1st September 1998 and 31st August 2000. The curriculum we offer is available to view here
