‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ 

Philippians 4:13 


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to St. Mary's Catholic Infant Academy and St. Mary's Catholic Junior Academy  website. Here you can start to discover what makes our infant and junior schools special places, why our children love our schools and why they remember the schools with such affection.

Our ambition is for every child to fulfil their potential and we celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and the gifts and talents they have. Every child is precious, and it is a privilege to play a part in their development.

The ambitious ethos of our schools encourages our school family to aim high and live up to our school Christian values as we believe, ‘We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.’ Philippians 4:13.

All our work with children and families, staff, governors, parishioners and the wider community is influenced by our core values which are: Compassion, Respect and Resilience.

Our 2-form entry schools work together on sites near to each other in Newton-Le-Willows.

We aim to provide an excellent education for all our pupils in every area of the curriculum, within a caring Catholic community.

Our Infant School caters for children aged 3-7 across our Nursery provision and classes of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

Our Junior School caters for children aged 7-11 with two classes in each of the year groups 3, 4, 5 and 6.

The children are taught a broad and balanced curriculum by wonderful teachers who set high standards. We give all our children the opportunity to shine and be proud, having the confidence to have a go at anything and believe that they can succeed. We continue to teach our children to have pride in themselves and work harmoniously with each other.

We have a fantastic PTFA that raises money for school funds and provides social activities for our school families. We are proud of our history, of our church and our town. We work together with positivity and enthusiasm to realise the hopes and dreams of all in our care.

We are proud of our schools and the personal and academic achievements of our children. We hope you can get a sense of our energy, ambition and ethos from our website. If you are interested in finding out more, do get in touch. Our children and staff would love to show you around.

Best wishes
