Our History

The History of St Mary’s CE Primary School

The history of our school is a fascinating journey; from it’s humble beginnings in the 18th Century to St Mary’s transformation into a Free School. The ‘History of St Mary’s Primary’ as written by Principal Peter Kyles is a narrative that sheds light on the evolving educational practices throughout the 19th Century, and socioeconomic factors that have helped shaped our school as we know it today.
