Much is written and spoken about the distinctive ethos of Holy Mary British Catholic School. This has been developed ensuring that this is a fundamental part of our daily provision and that our ethos is made a reality in the lives of the students, teachers and families of the school community.
Holy Mary shares many features with other Catholic schools. We share the central mission of passing on the cultural and scientific heritage to the next generation, and of encouraging the personal growth of each student through good teaching, outstanding pastoral care and the creation of an effective school community. However, at Holy Mary, our faith is at the very heart of all that we do and aspire to achieve. We celebrate and wear our Catholic faith as a badge of honour and identity and we strive to become like the best teacher of them all, Jesus Christ.
Holy Mary, Our Queen and Mother is our Patroness and Her love for us allows us to recognise that the person of Jesus Christ is at the centre of our Catholic faith. The person of Jesus Christ is presented to students and to staff and the values and attitudes of Christ are modelled by the adults and students in our school community. Students are encouraged to make the values and attitudes of Jesus Christ their own and to feel proud of their faith and identity. Holy Mary recognises the Spirit of the Risen Christ, present, alive and active in the school community and we feel Blessed to be a part of His Glorious Resurrection.
