St Mary's Swimming Team

Congratulations to St Mary's Year 7 & 8 swimmers, who won the Blackpool Schools' Swimming competition at Palatine Leisure Centre last week. All pupils were superb, especially the Year 8 girls' team who won the majority of their races. Special congratulations to Jess Duffy who is in Year 7 but actually swam for the Year 8 girls' team. She was outstanding!

Mock Trial Competition

Mock Trial Competition

On Saturday 21st March fourteen St Mary’s students had a brilliant day at the Mock Trial Competition at Burnley Magistrates’ Court. This involved role play of a court case in a real magistrates’ court against other schools. The team involved defence and prosecution lawyers, a legal adviser, witnesses, a defendant, an usher, a journalist and a team of magistrates. Miss Ellarby would like to thank all of the team – you were all absolutely fantastic!
