The Board of Governors is delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Siobhan Kelly as the next Principal of St Mary’s CBGS.

Mrs Kelly will replace Mr John Martin as principal following his retirement on the 31st October.

The Board wishes Mrs Kelly every success in her new role and looks forward to many years of continuing success for St Mary’s.


To mark World Suicide Day, we began our positive mental health workshops for Year 8 students.

Gary Symmington from Lighthouse Charity delivered the session to students from 8A exploring positive mental health and how to look after yourself and each other.

Gary will be in for the next 6 Mondays working with each year 8 form class. 

The Senior School Leadership team received their badges from the Principal, Mr Martin this morning. 

Following interview, Ronan McCluskey was selected as Head Boy for 2018-19, with Finn McCann, Eamonn McCullough and Ciaran McCaffrey as Deputy Head Boys, with specific responsibilities for KS3, KS4 and Post-16 respectively. 

Ten other Year 14 students were selected to be Senior Prefects with various roles throughout the School.  It was obvious that the students had put a tremendous amount of effort into preparation for the interview, as the calibre of responses was extremely high.  We would like to thank the students for their commitment and wish them well as they take up their new roles.
