St Mary’s Catholic High School is one of the longest established schools in Croydon, having been founded over 140 years ago. It has expanded over the years and now caters for about 720 boys and girls, the majority of whom are Catholic. They come from a wide catchment area. St Mary’s is situated in the centre of Croydon which makes it very accessible with excellent links to public transport.

It has a long tradition of upholding those values associated with Christian ways and also setting high academic standards. On average, ninety-five percent of their pupils move on to Further and Higher Education. There is also a strong tradition of sports and music at St Mary’s. Great emphasis is placed on maintaining firm, but fair discipline, whilst visitors frequently remark on the friendly atmosphere and welcome from both staff and pupils alike. 

The School believes that education is about creating opportunities for their young people to do the best they can with their lives - to develop lively and inquiring minds in the search for what is good and true. Their aim is to send out their young people well prepared to face the challenges of the modern world - economic, technological, personal and spiritual.
