A warm welcome to our St Mary’s Church of England Primary School website, providing you with an opportunity to see our school vision and ethos in action across our school.

St Mary’s school is a small one form entry school in the heart of Islington, a short distance walk from Highbury and Islington Station, Essex Road Station and Angel Station.

Our school vision is at the heart of our school life and actions; ‘We believe that everyone is precious and loved by God. We aspire to let our light shine in all that we do. We nurture and empower one another to flourish.  Together we shine in our world by showing compassion and by serving others.  Let God’s light shine through us.’ This is rooted in ‘Let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds…’ Matthew 5:16. We work together with our families, governors and school partners, to build children’s confidence and awareness of their skills and talents, that they can let their light shine in all that they do, and as courageous advocates in our school, community and our world.

St Mary’s is a happy, nurturing and ambitious school.  We are proud of our school community of pupils and families, our diversity and our commitment to empower our children to be the best that they can be.  Together with our school community we worked through the lockdowns and continue to move forward together with resilience, courage and kindness.  If you are interested in your child joining St Mary’s school, you are most welcome to call our school office and join one of our school tours to see for yourself what an amazing school St Mary’s is.

With my best wishes,

Genevieve Prayag,
