 A message from our Chair of Governors 
The Governors know that everyone (including the Governing Body!) is working hard. The progress which pupils are making is very good, and we hope that both they and the staff are enjoying their activities.

We know that everyone will keep on doing their very best to continue to raise  standards and to make St Mary Magdalen’s a great place to be!
