St Mary’s Catholic High School is a mixed secondary academy in North Derbyshire. The school converted to a Catholic voluntary-aided academy in the summer of 2012. St Mary’s is located north of Chesterfield, with places for 1,300 students aged 11-18, of which 285 are in the sixth form. The school primarily serves North East Derbyshire, but some students travel from as far afield as Sheffield. 

St Mary’s Catholic High School is supported by the Catholic dioceses of Hallam and Nottingham, with additional governors appointed to represent parents, staff and the local authority.

Values and vision

St Mary’s Catholic High School is committed to providing a variety of opportunities to students at all stages of their development. Extra-curricular activities are considered to be equally as important as examinations, and the school celebrates both academic and non-academic achievement. Students are encouraged to contribute regardless of where their talents lie, and the school aims to foster all abilities. 

St Mary’s states that, despite being a faith school, it is open to all communities in North Derbyshire, and that the social diversity found within the student body is testament to the school’s inclusivity. 

Ofsted report

There is exemplary behaviour around the school. Students are unfailingly courteous and polite to adults, and each other. Students say that bullying is not a concern and it is very rare for any disruption to occur in lessons. Students are kept very safe in the school and it is clear from their attitudes to school and their attendance that students are extremely proud to be a part of the community of St Mary’s Catholic High School.”
