New Parents Page 2017

We are delighted that you have decided to send you child to St Mary’s Catholic High School. We are proud of our school, being awarded Croydon Secondary School of the Year 2016 and as such it is a very exciting time to be joining our school as we quickly move towards becoming ‘outstanding’.

This page contains information about two key events for yourself and your child. These events will allow you to experience life at St Mary’s and prepare for the start of Year 7.

Induction Evening

I would like to invite you and your child, to attend the school on the evening of Thursday 6th July 2017 at 6.30pm.  During the evening you will receive further information about the school, its ethos and expectations.  You will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s Head of Year and Form Tutor, who will be able to answer any queries or concerns that you may have. You will also be able to meet the Senior Leadership Team and hear about the shared vision they have for St Mary’s.

Induction Day

By arrangement with the primary schools, your child is invited to spend Friday 7th July 2017 at St Mary’s. This is an exciting opportunity to experience life at St Mary’s. All students will get to go to lessons and meet teaching staff; they will become familiar with their tutor group and the other students in the year group. 

All students will need to arrive by 9.00am when they will gather in the school hall for the start of the day. Students will need to wear their primary school uniform and should bring their pencil case for use in the ‘taster’ lessons.  I am pleased to advise you that Pabulum our school caterers would like to offer your child a meal to the value of £2.35 free of charge on this day. Should you not wish to take up this offer your child should bring a packed lunch, including enough to drink for the day. Students will be dismissed at 2.30 pm.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.
