Writing Week 2016 

We have got everything happening at Rothwell St. Marys’s next week – from the Coastline to the Wild West. Writing week begins on Monday and all of our children will be motivated, supported and eager to learn! 

Spring Term 

Spring is just around the corner and everybody is working incredibly hard. Have a look at the class pages to see what is happening in each area of our school. Here are a few pictures which showcase some of the best bits over the past few months! 

Autumn Half Term

School is in full swing and over the course of the past eight weeks there has been an abundance of excitement and engagement as children have settled into new classes with new challenges to help them grow.


This theme of growth lead us perfectly up to our Harvest Festival (Friday 23rd October) when children in Key Stage One kindly brought in gifts of food to share with the elderly people of Mulgrave House. As a generous act KS2 children brought in money that we will donate as a school to CAFOD, a charity we frequently wotk with.

As a school we are always thinking of others and Year Six has recently completed a very topical unit of work within RE that they wanted to shared with everybody. It offers us a chance to pause and reflect…and to appreciate the wisdom of some of the young minds within our school.

Another area of growth throughout school has been the hard work we have seen from our Class Govenors who have been visiting their class this half term. There has been lots of rather technical questions for our Class Governors to answer but the children have loved making this new link and having a recognisable face in school.


As usual there has been a great deal of excitement through school. Our first edition of The Saint Mary’s Times has been released to children in Key Stage Two, there have been trips to places like the National Railway Museum & Singing at Mount St. Mary’s, Year Two transformed into Pirates for a Day, Bikability cycled, we had an enormous Bake Sale to raise funds for MacMillan Coffee Morning and there have been numerous sporting events and competitions organised by Mr Glennon & Mrs Youhill. Miss Leonard released her twelve ‘Always’ children throughout the school who she has personally invited for take-away pizzas, Father Martin was welcomed with open arms and our new Reception children are being very well looked after by their Buddies as they settle into school. It has been a great half term captured in a few pictures below. Make sure you have a look at your class pages to find out more.

Welcome Back – September 2015

We are delighted to have our children back at school and this includes our thirty new starters who have begun their little lives at school with smiles. There is a lot of excitement in the air as lessons have begun, clubs have resumed and we have new faces too. At the end of September our first edition of our school newspaper will be released. Next Friday we also have a very special Mass to begin our year together with our Catholic Values at heart. Have a look through our updated class pages and know we are just a phone call away should you need clarification on anything.

2014 – 2015

We have had a wonderful year in school and we are all very pleased with the achievements made by our children as they grow and learn in God’s love every single day. The Gallery below showcases a few of those special moments. As September approaches we prepare for a brand new school year and look forward to all of those new achievements ready to be grasped and goals that lie ahead of us.  Thank you for being part of this journey with us.
