Mount St Mary’s is a successful and over-subscribed inner city school located in the very heart of the city. We are well placed to focus our efforts on driving the standards of progress and achievement for all learners.

In 2017 Ofsted identified Mount St Mary's as "Requiring Improvement" but with considerable positive features.  Our subsequent Ofsted Monitoring Visit in June 2018 highlights and praises the positive impact of leadership in all areas.  

We have a well established reputation for our care, guidance and support, ensuring all learners are afforded a high level of structure and personalised development, recognised within our Ofsted report.  All students seek to access extra curricular activities beyond the school day, be that of a sporting nature, academic, performing arts or public speaking.  This is an area we value highly and continue to see growth in.
