Year 6 Leavers

Always the hardest part of ending the summer term… goodbye to our marvellous year 6s, and good luck as you leave St Mary’s for the wider world :-).


St Mary’s Got Talent 2016

Thank you to all the acts that auditioned for St Mary’s Got Talent 2016. We had an excellent range of talents on show at our final last night. A big thank you to our judges who had the very hard task of choosing our winners, and to the winners themselves. Thank you also to the parents and carers who supported them in their journey! We raised over £100 for our partner school in Uganda, so thank you on their behalf.


Leavers’ Mass

We celebrated Mass this morning to say goodbye to our year 6 leavers, and to Father Ralph who is leaving Swanage. It was super to see so many friends and family. Year 6 children chose the hymns, wrote the prayers and gave the readings.

Sports Day

Ballard won the house cup for sports day, with fierce competition in both the morning and the afternoon. All children took part in a variety of races, as well as field events for years 4-6. The morning session was finished off in style with a fine display of traditional St Mary’s marching. Thank you to all helpers from The Swanage School, to those who brought cakes and served ice creams and tea. Congratulations to our cup and shield winners.

Year 6 Uni Day

Year 6 visited The Purbeck School to take part in a workshop hosted by Bournemouth University. We learnt about the vast range of courses available and started to think about our own hopes, goals and aspirations. The workshop ended with our very own graduation ceremony.
