Annual Review

Welcome to Magnolian 2022

This year's Annual Review celebrates the welcome return of the familiarity of our daily school routine and renewed opportunities to join together once more as a community.

Whether sharing the experience of a drama performance, competitive sport, musical entertainment or simply just learning side by side once more, this year has provided plenty of moments to feel grateful for.

“So, as we approach the end of a distinctive year which brought many challenges, there is a great deal over which we can draw satisfaction and much to look forward to at St Mary’s in the months and years ahead. That this is so owes a great deal to many of the key people within our community to whom we are, and should be, unreservedly grateful.”

Stuart Westley, Chair of Governors

“All of us have our own thoughts and opinions about school life and in order for our school to reflect those beliefs, we each need to speak up and make our thoughts known. There are many avenues for student voice at St Mary’s.”

St Mary's students

“HPL encourages students to be curious about the world, and we know when students are curious, they learn at a deeper and more sophisticated level.”
