Open Evening

You are most welcome to our 2019 Open Night. May I take this opportunity to thank you for coming this evening.

Choosing the right high school for your child is essential. You have invested much love and time in shaping the young person your child is becoming and so getting the right balance between academic success, strong discipline, high expectations with challenge and an environment where they feel valued, respected and loved is important. Getting a feel for a school is a crucial step in the process and we hope that tonight will allow you to do just that.

Our Mission as a school is summed up in our slogan: Let Your Light Shine. It starts from the belief that each child is precious and unique and has God-given talents and qualities. As a smaller school we create a family atmosphere where your child will be safe and happy, where all staff know every student and relationships matter. One where we will work tirelessly to discover and develop those talents. It is truly a warm, welcoming and vibrant place to be where we work as a family to support, challenge and care for one another, striving continuously for excellence in all we do so that we can be the best we can be.

This is an exciting time for our school as it moves forward in the next phase of its journey to becoming an outstanding Catholic school. With a staff that is passionate and committed to delivering the absolute best for all our students, they go beyond high-quality teaching and pastoral care and offer a rich extracurricular provision that ensures daily enrichment for all. I am determined that our school builds on this legacy and continues to flourish. Many new initiatives have already been implemented in order to lay solid foundations to support our drive for excellence; we are at an exciting stage in our development and have high aspirations for our future success. This is a great place to be.

There is much to take in at an Open Evening and you will hear about our many successes. The best way of truly understanding who we are is to experience it yourself. If you come to our Open Evening, or to one of our Open Mornings, I guarantee you will be greeted with a warm welcome from all in our family at Brownedge St Mary’s.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Nicola Oddie
