A very warm welcome to

St  Mary’s CE Primary School, High Crompton

A message from Mrs. P. Hartley, Headteacher

On behalf of all the children, Staff and Governors I would like to warmly welcome you to St Mary’s C.E (Aided) Primary School website.

We are extremely proud to be an inclusive Christian school. We aim to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

Our school vision and values are central to the Christian ethos of the school. We recognise that each person is an individual who has been ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’. Our vision is to create a family,  rooted in love for one another where children and adults can flourish and achieve their potential to reach their own spiritual, academic and personal goals.

The Christian vision and biblical scripture that we live by in school is :

Through God’s love and our Christian Values, we encourage each individual to love, respect and value God, themselves and others.

We encourage and nurture everyone to flourish and grow into the unique person God made them to be, ready to go out into the world to love others. 

This is rooted in Jesus’ words: Love one another as Jesus loved us.  (John 13 v 34-35)

Our core Christian value is love: Love God, Love Ourselves and Love One Another. We work in close partnership with all churches in our mission and in particular St Mary’s Church. We embrace the richness that the Christian ethos brings to our school.

Over recent years the school continues to excel, with high academic performance and in the top 10% of schools Nationally, for all core subjects. We are very proud that in 2023 we were recognised as one of the top 3 schools in Oldham for academic performance.

Our school website provides an insight to our loving, Christian atmosphere and I hope you enjoy exploring all the exciting opportunities we have on offer.
