Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Ipswich.


St Mary's Catholic Primary School is an outstanding school for boys and girls aged between 4 and 11.  We are proud to be part of the Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi Academy Trust and the Diocese of East Anglia, see links below.


During their time with us the children will learn the skills and attitudes which help to shape their futures.  We aim to identify and promote their skills to the full and believe that children learn best in an atmosphere that embodies discipline and structure. Emphasis is placed on the raising of self-esteem in each child developing a sense of responsibility to the world around them.

We enable the children to develop their personal relationship with God through the teaching of Gospel values.  We are very much a part of the parish community of the Catholic Churches of St Mary's, St James, St Pancras and St Thomas and we recognise the importance of the partnership with both home and parish.  By the time our children leave we expect them to be confident, competent learners with a pride in themselves and their achievements.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.


Thank you for visiting!

"This is an outstanding school. Senior leaders, the governing body, parents, carers and pupils share a highly ambitious vision for the school. Its aim for pupils to ‘be confident, competent learners, with a pride in themselves and their achievements’ is met extremely well."







Ofsted RE Report, February 2012.

"St Mary’s School is an outstanding Catholic school. The extremely strong Catholic identity permeates the school’s daily life. The committed leadership of the headteacher and governors effectively promotes a strong spiritual purpose within the Catholic ethos. Prayer, mass and worship are of pivotal importance in the school’s life. Staff are committed to the very high profile given to religious education."
