 “If we love others, we live in the light”
1 John 2:10




Welcome to our website and the gateway to all the information you need about Brownedge St. Mary’s Catholic High School.




“Let your light shine” is our distinct Catholic mission.






Each young adult entrusted to us has many God-given gifts and talents. As a school, our mission is to discover and develop these talents to their full potential. That light also represents hope, truth, courage and love and these should all be developed, shared and allowed to shine with generosity and pride. By doing this we ensure that our pupils’ journeys into adulthood are also journeys of faith from which grow values, aspirations and morals that inform their actions and choices as unique individuals.


All are welcome in our school family. It is an environment where pupils feel safe, cared for and confident to express themselves. As a result, excellent relationships are formed, based on mutual respect and care for one another. We work as a family to support and challenge each other, striving continuously for excellence and to be the best that we can be.


I am extremely proud of our hard working and dedicated staff who go beyond high-quality teaching and pastoral care and offer a rich extracurricular provision that ensures daily enrichment for all.


If you would like to visit us, I would be delighted to show you our vibrant school. The best way of truly understanding who we are is to experience it yourself. If you do, I guarantee you will be greeted with a warm welcome from all in our family at Brownedge St Mary’s.
