Boston St Mary's RC Primary Academy

Boston's Catholic School


Welcome to our school


Dear parents, children and all visitors,

May I welcome you on behalf of myself, the whole staff team and Governors to our school. Here at Boston St Mary's we welcome the partnership of Parish, Home and School; we work extremely hard to create a community spirit and we very much hope you will choose to become part of it.

Did you know the word ‘catholic’ means all-embracing? At St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary Academy, everyone is welcome! You may be Catholic, Christian, another religion or have no religious affiliation at all; whichever applies to you, you are welcome at St Mary’s. Our school is a Roman Catholic primary academy and our mission is rooted within the Gospel. We pride ourselves on our Catholic ethos which is built upon the values of love, hope, truth, peace and forgiveness. Our community is made up of many different types of people; we believe that difference is something to be celebrated. Through RE, PSHE and the wider curriculum we aim to teach our children the importance of treating all people with respect and above all, how we ourselves would like to be treated. We look forward to welcoming you to our St Mary’s family.


Yours sincerely,
Mrs Lisa Gleed-Thornley BSc (Hons), NASEN, CLCS
