Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Marnhull, North Dorset. We are all very proud of our small and happy school and we hope you enjoy finding out about us on our website.
Pupils who come to this school make great progress due to the quality of teaching, the caring and nurturing environment and the overall provision offered to them.
We welcome children of all faiths and none to our school and invite everyone to share in the life of our school family.
If you are a parent and would like to come and visit us, please phone or pop in. We would be delighted to show you around our school and answer any questions you have.

The Church insists on the highest standards of academic achievement in its schools, so that our young people leave us as ‘agents of change’ – educated and caring people who have the qualifications, knowledge and skills they need to flourish as human beings and make the world a better place.
Inspired by our Teacher, Jesus Christ, and his good news to the poor, we have a commitment especially to those who are disadvantaged. We are determined that a child’s start in life need not determine their future. We are committed to the well-being of the earth, our common home, inspired by the example of Pope Francis: to live wisely, think deeply and love generously.
In all our schools we will develop a culture of high expectation and aspiration, based on our fundamental belief in the dignity of all human beings. We want all our pupils to flourish in safe, happy and enriching environments, taught and supported by adults who are skilled, motivated and committed to our shared vision and values.
We will work together as one Trust, one family of schools, a community inspired by a vision for excellence. We commit ourselves to deepen our mission and raise standards in order to provide an excellent Catholic education for every child in our care.
