Access to St. Mary's

The entrances to the school are:

  • Through the gates in Shorts Road
  • Through the gate by St. Joseph's Cottage
  • Through the gate in Pound Street
  • All gates apart from Shorts Road are locked between 9.30am and 3pm.



It is not permitted for parents to drive into the school grounds at the beginning and end of the school day.

St Mary's car park is open between 9.30am and 2pm and for evening functions.

Parents can only drive down to the school when they are picking up a sick child, have appointments, or have been given special permission. (Parents should not drive down to the school for after school clubs.).

We encourage parents and children where possible to walk to school. If you bring a car we ask you to park safely and respect our neighbours by not parking across driveways.
