About Us

St Mary’s School caters for pupils aged 3-11 years. We are one of the “feeder schools” for The Maelor School in Penley, and pupils attend from as far away as Brymbo, Llangollen and Oswestry.

We asked our parents and carers to describe our school. Here are some of the answers:

Our school benefits from single-age classes, each with a dedicated class teacher. We also have several teaching assistants who work alongside the qualified teaches to provide small-group teaching and one-to-one support. A full list of school staff can be found on the “Meet the Staff” page.

St Mary’s was one of the first schools in Wales to introduce the concept of Forest School and embrace Outdoor Learning as a method of teaching. You can find out more about how forest school works by clicking the button:

Pupil Voice is important at St Mary’s School and we have a number of student committees allowing the pupils to represent their peers and influence the way the school is run. Each Autumn, pupils in years 3-6 are elected by their classmates to join Student Council, Eco Council, Criw Cymraeg and the Wellbeing and Ethos committees.
