The Wider Community

The school has close links with the community it serves, frequently becoming involved in both local and national charity work. As a centre for learning, our facilities are open to adults through adult evening classes and our partner primary schools. We have a highly regarded programme of performing arts and sports events.

St Mary's Centre

St Mary’s Community Centre, situated in Chequerfield, is a purpose built centre providing library and meeting facilities. We offer outreach facilities on two evenings a week after school for home learning support. Our team of Learning Mentors are in attendance. Learners have internet access as well as school text books and library resources. We also have an office in the building which can be used for meetings with parents and Connexions staff. We have developed this resource as part of our Community Links and Specialist Science College status.
