Further information about St. Mary's College:

St. Mary's is a Catholic independent day School, founded by the Congregation of Irish Christian Brothers. Established in 1919 to provide Grammar school opportunities for Catholic children, the College consists of a Senior School (11-18) in Everest Road Crosby, a Preparatory School ('The Mount') in Blundellsands, and an Early Years Department adjacent to the Senior School.

The College is fully and successfully co-educational and has a lay Principal and staff. There are continuing close links with the Crosby Community of Christian Brothers and the family of Edmund Rice schools worldwide.


The College's working philosophy is well expressed in the words of Edmund Rice, the founder of the Christian Brothers:

"Education refers to a whole person's life here and hereafter."

Our aim is education in all the dimensions of the person, spiritual, moral, intellectual, physical and cultural. In Christ's own words: 'I have come that you may have life and have it to the full'.

The commitment to academic excellence (with some 98% of its Sixth Form leavers entering degree courses) is within a Christian vision of the person. Thus, we offer an academic education within the context of Christian relationships, values, witness, worship and service. All members of staff are expected to support this ethos and identity positively.

Key features
