Message from our Headteacher

Welcome to St Mary's Church of England Primary Academy. I am Trevor Marsden Headteacher, I arrived at the school in September 2021. The school is situated in the very heart of Hunslet in the shadow of the spire of the now demolished St Mary’s church. Central to the future of the school is our Christian vision that brings light and hope to all our fantastic students and families.

I have been fortunate to lead schools in the UK and overseas. I love education and have a passion for teaching and learning, and I am determined to ensure all our pupils have the very best education. St Mary’s has been on a journey over the last few years, but it is time to press forward with school improvement. We know our students will grow up into a world that is different from the one we have now. Sometimes I worry about the future that they will have, but I do believe it will be bright. I want students at St Mary’s to lift their heads up and let their light shine as I know they can achieve their dreams.

I hope you find our website helpful, and I would encourage you to explore it to find out more about our school.
