Enhanced Learning

At St Mary's we are committed to enriching and broadening the children's teaching and learning by extending and enhancing the curriculum wherever possible.

We firmly believe in the value of a wide range of educational visits to support our school curriculum. Educational visits support and enhance learning in the classroom enabling children to experience a topic or project in a different environment thereby reinforcing and consolidating what has been taught in the classroom.

Similarly, we host many theatre groups and workshops for the children to experience learning through the medium of drama and interactive presentations. Regular visitors to St Mary's include the Young Shakespeare Company, Quantum Theatre, CREW workshops and Perform4Schools.

Themed Weeks are a more recent introduction and they have proved immensely popular with the children. The children, their teachers and support staff work hard to create an amazing journey of learning through collaboration and shared learning.
