St Mary's Church of England Academy Stotfold

Together we learn, achieve and believe

Welcome to St Mary's

If your child is to join us for the first time we welcome you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful association over the coming years. If you already have a child here we are pleased to continue the links between us.


The staff, governors and I are committed to working together to provide the highest quality education for your children. We aim to ensure all of the children enjoy school and strive for excellence within our broad and balanced curriculum. Our Academy is welcoming and friendly and we are very proud of our Christian family ethos. We look forward to working with you, as together we can give your child the very best possible start to their school life.

The information on this website will, I hope, give a flavour of our work, but I am always available to speak to parents about the aspects of our work and/or to give a personal tour of the Academy. If you would like to do this please feel free to give me a ring.

If you are already at St. Mary's, have a browse - you may discover something new!
