The Cathedral School of St Mary
We are a Catholic school, proud of our religion, values, history and achievements. Unusually for an inner-city school, we are a small school right in the heart of the city with a caring and loving ethos.
It is our aim to educate our children so they leave us knowing their mission and vision to make the world a better place. We will encourage them to become successful, resilient learners and confident individuals. In the ever-changing world of education, it is important that we as a school don't stand still. Our staff are also lifelong learners and will ensure they go the extra mile to provide a curriculum that develops, challenges and motivates all of our children.
We are part of CAST - a multi academy trust set up to protect, support and develop the schools in the Diocese of Plymouth.
With our children being the leaders of the future, we actively promote independence, confidence and teamwork. Together, everyone achieves more. We are a diverse and thriving community with big ambitions!

All children at The Cathedral School of St. Mary receive high quality teaching which is tailored to meet their individual needs. Sometimes children will take part in small group or individually targeted intervention sessions to meet and support specific areas of need.
We work closely with a range of outside agencies to further support children to be able to achieve their fullest potential. We have strong pastoral systems throughout the school and all staff work closely together to support children in their social and emotional development.
Where possible, we adapt our provision and the environment to meet the additional needs of children. Children with SEND are given every opportunity to take part in the wider life of the school.
