This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

Year 6 Production: The Lion King




What a spectacular performance!

Year Six wowed their parents and the School with a truly memorable performance of The Lion King.

Thank you to all Year Six:  for learning the songs, working together, helping one another to learn their lines and for giving their absolute best.

A truly professional performance was given by all of the characters- whether a small or large part, they gave their all. 

What a wonderful way to end the year, after all the hard academic work undertaken.

God bless all Year Six on their transition to secondary school. May their faith be their rock for the future.

Year Six Transition to Secondary school workshop


Mrs McCarthy, one of our school governors, came to Year Six to present a workshop on transition to secondary school.

Thoughts and feelings about leaving St Mary Magdalen’s were discussed in small groups, then shared as a class.

In addition, the pupils thought about what the secondary schools expect of its pupils: behaviour, organisation, attitude and taking personal responsibility.

A scenario about bullying was examined as a class. We looked at: different forms of bullying, how bullying can happen in school as well of out of school, and that if at all worried it is “your” responsibility to tell.

Thank you to Mrs McCarthy for coming in and preparing Year Six for their transition. It was important for them to express their thoughts and feelings about moving onto secondary school.
