Message from the Head Teacher

Mr Down – Headteacher

I am proud to welcome you to St Cuthbert Mayne Joint Roman Catholic and Church of England School.


It is my firm belief that the best education combines high standards of academic achievement with strong moral guidance, spiritual reflection and development. Education should provide opportunities for every child to succeed in a variety of ways, preparing young people for a future in which they can thrive in their chosen career paths in addition to becoming responsible, caring citizens.


Furthermore, learning should be engaging, students should feel happy and safe and every individual should experience success. We work hard at St Cuthbert Mayne to achieve this for our students.


St Cuthbert Mayne School is proud of its ethos its all round high standards and its strong emphasis on personal development. Our Mission Statement is based on ‘Christ is our Cornerstone’ and ‘Learning is our Focus.’ This is underpinned by our Core Values ‘To have integrity, to be courageous, compassionate and creative.’ We offer families the opportunity of an exceptional education in a strong Christian context.


I believe that St Cuthbert Mayne School is a very special place. I am proud of our wonderful students, the dedicated staff and the supportive parents and governors.


The prospectus, inevitably, gives only a brief view of the school, so you are warmly invited to visit the school for our Information Evenings, Open Mornings or to arrange a tour of the school.



James Down
