Open evenings

Our open evenings are a great way to come and experience what our school has to offer.  Take the opportunity to chat to subject teachers and our students about school life and what to expect at St. Mary's.  If you have missed out on attending our open evenings but would still like to have a look round our school please contact us and we will endeavour to help you out.
