Congratulations to our new Head Girl and Head Boy!

Head and Deputy Boys and GirlsCongratulations to Kumiko Goddard and Adam Alsharif  on their appointment as the Head Girl and Head Boy of St Marys Catholic Academy 2016/17.

We wish them every success in the coming year.

We are really looking forward to working with Kumiko and Adam , their two deputies (Madison and Jacob) for the betterment of the student experience over the next 12 months. These four and the ten to be newly appointed House lead prefects will form the Student Management Team (SMT) for the coming year and will work alongside the prefects and student council.

Collectively their roles will provide them with a number of opportunities to represent the student body in improving experiences and systems at the school and also to represent the school in showcasing the work that goes on here. It will be important that they make their ideas and opinions heard.

All fourteen of the SMT will be role models to the rest of the students at the school and will constantly endeavour to display the highest standards of conduct, presentation and commitment to learning whilst gaining key insights into the 6th form by working alongside 6th form Ambassadors.  

Bus Transport Arrangements

Due to the ongoing roadworks and subsequent closure of the bridge on Plymouth Road, the times of the school buses have been changed as follows: 

  • The 400  from (Fleetwood), The 401 (from Lytham) and 403 (from Halfway House) will begin their journeys 15 minutes earlier each morning. 
  • Students must check the school website for the new times.
  • The 402 (From Mereside) will be the same time.
  • There is currently no change of routes planned although if  problems arise with delays and congestion  the route will be changed as necessary.
These changes commence from Tues 8th Nov.

8F Donate to Streetlife

8F
“Out of a mountain of despair a stone of hope”
came the famous words of Martin Luther King, which provided the inspiration for the gospel theme this week of having faith. Having faith, even just a little we are told in Luke’s Gospel will enable the followers of Jesus to do wondrous things. Members of 8F took the message of the gospel literally. Each member was given the challenge this week to collect one toiletry item in order to donate to the homeless charity – Streetlife. Streetlife works with many vulnerable young people aged 16-25 in Blackpool providing emergency accommodation and a wide range of support. Pictured above are members of 8F with their Form Tutor Mr Navesey and Miss Smith our Lead Chaplain receiving the toiletry items on Streetlife’s behalf.
