Welcome to The Cathedral School


As Headteacher of The Cathedral School of St. Mary and on behalf of our staff and governors, it is an honour and privilege to extend a warm welcome to our website.

We are a small, vibrant, Catholic, ‘School of Joy’, right in the heart of Plymouth providing an excellent, enriched education with a caring, loving, family ethos. As a school community we support each other and know every child and family in our care. We are a city school with a village feel. We have 5 classes:  Foundation, Year 1, year 2, a mixed year four and five and year five and six.

As a Catholic school, we are proud of our tradition and heritage, which inspire everything we do. We are committed to creating a vibrant and inclusive community where all are welcomed and valued, regardless of background or belief.  All pupils are welcome at our school.

We aim to provide the best education for all our children so they leave us knowing their mission and vision to make the world a better place. We will equip them with the skills to become successful, resilient learners and confident individuals.

Whether you are a current member of our School of Joy community, a prospective family exploring what we have to offer, or simply interested in learning more about our Catholic ethos, we hope that you will find our website informative and inspiring. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to assist you. We would be delighted to give you a tour of our School of Joy.
