St. Mary’s school is situated in the pleasant semi-rural village of Eccleston. Our school has served the community of Eccleston since 1873. The school was created by the community efforts of St. Mary’s Church and the village people to cater for the educational, spiritual and moral needs of the children.
St Mary’s is an outstanding school. Pupils thoroughly enjoy school and thrive in a warm and supportive atmosphere that is underpinned by strong moral values. A determination to develop pupils’ full potential as learners and as thoughtful, well rounded and responsible individuals is shared among leaders, the governing body and staff. Staff morale is high, and they work successfully as a team to enable pupils to achieve excellence in their academic achievement and personal development, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school is highly inclusive.
