HEADTEACHER WEEKLY AWARDS (click here to view this week's winners),
"St. Mary of the Angels provides outstanding Catholic education....pupils' behaviour is excellent...they are polite, extremely well mannered and keen to help and look after each other...there is outstanding provision for ALL of the pupils." (S48 Ofsted accredited inspection, June 2016.) CONGRATULATIONS!
We are a Catholic primary school serving our parish, and also the wider community of Ellesmere Port; we're a family friendly school, and we're very proud to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ; everyone is cared for; and every person's talents are celebrated! We welcome children of all faiths or no faith in particular.
Since 2001, we've had 8 Ofsted accredited inspections. EVERY grade in EVERY inspection has been either OUTSTANDING or GOOD. This is the only school in the town with this record; and we are very proud of our ongoing commitment to excellent education. Ofsted said in 2013 that "pupils' behaviour is exceptionally good - at all times". 100% of teaching is certified outstanding or good. In summer 2016, inspectors said it was an " outstanding" Catholic school.
We have a new, unique school building, which you have to see to believe! All the latest technology, in hi-tech classes; natural light and ventilation; and environmental features which help us to learn rapidly.
To visit us, simply ring 0151 338 2430. You're most welcome to come to any of our assemblies, social events or Church services of course! They're all in the calendar on this site. I look forward to meeting you. Your child will receive an excellent education and the highest quality of care here, from our excellent staff team. Pop in - we're here for you, with a warm family welcome.
Kind wishes, Rob Hughes (Headteacher, St. Mary of the Angels).
