Welcome to St. Mary’s College

Thank you for visiting the St. Mary’s College website. As you explore these pages, you will see what makes our school community unique, and why St. Mary’s is rated ‘Excellent’ in all areas by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

St. Mary’s College is an independent, co-educational school with a Christian ethos, specifically Roman Catholic but welcoming pupils of all faiths. We provide continuous, high-quality education to boys and girls aged 0-18 in our family of schools in Crosby and Blundellsands.  

One of our key aims is the pursuit of excellence and nowhere is this more evident than in our pupils’ outstanding academic achievements. As one of the North West’s leading academic schools, our public examination results are consistently amongst the best in the area, both at GCSE and A Level.

However, at St. Mary’s success is measured by much more than examination results. We place great emphasis on the development of the whole person, encouraging achievement in many fields via our rich programme of extra-curricular activities.

St. Mary’s promotes caring for others, and offers significant opportunities for spiritual and moral development.

All of these factors help to make St. Mary’s a learning environment in which children can develop into bright, confident young people who want to make the world better for others, as well as themselves. At St. Mary’s, we believe this is what education is all about.

I hope that you enjoy browsing our website and encourage you to visit us and see for yourself what makes St. Mary’s so special.
