Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to St Mary's

Welcome to St. Mary's R.C. Primary School website, I hope you enjoy exploring the website and seeing all of the exciting learning opportunities that our children take part in. Here at St. Mary's we are very proud of the strong home, school and parish links that have continued to develop over many decades. You can find out more about our community and history within the section 'Our Catholic School.' St Mary's has converted to academy status and is proud to be part of Romero Catholic Academy Trust; more information about the trust is available within the section 'Romero Trust'.

At St Mary's, we aim to provide a happy living and learning environment in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential. St Mary's is the only Catholic primary school in the town of Bacup. It has a thriving nursery class, with part time and full time places available throughout the year.

Offering all the advantages of a Church school, St Mary's caters for all families who believe in giving children a strong moral understanding of today's world as well as an excellent all round education.

St Mary's is proud to be called an Extended School with a Breakfast Club beginning at 8.00 am every week day morning and our After School Club - Busy Kids - running from 3.20 pm to 5.15 pm everyday.

We are a busy, but friendly school with lots going on. We hope you like our website and find it informative and easy to navigate; if there is any information you would like us to add please mention it to a member of our office staff.
