St Mary’s Wins Bid in Post-16 Capacity Fund

We are delighted to announce that St Mary’s has been successful in our bid to be one of the 39 post-16 institutions to win part of the Post-16 Capacity Fund. We are extremely excited to use these additional funds in the creation of new classrooms and we can’t wait to put our plans into action.

Minister for Skills, Alex Burghart, had this to say on the Post-16 Fund, “Every young person should have the opportunity to gain the skills they need to reach their goals and go on to have successful careers. This investment will boost capacity so we can make sure there is a place for every 16 to 19-year-old, giving them access to the high-quality learning facilities they need to succeed.”

The Post-16 Capacity Fund is also part of the Government’s plan for net zero carbon emissions by the year 2050, as all successful providers are required to show how their projects will contribute to the mission.

We are very grateful to have been awarded this grant and look forward to putting the fund into advancing our teaching and learning environment.

Outreach Coffee Morning

St Mary’s attends first Coffee Morning with local Parish

What a lovely way to welcome the Christmas month by attending our first ever Coffee Morning with local parish, St Lawrence’s. As part of our outreach mission to maintain a presence within the community and ensure we are doing our bit to support charities in the local area, we have began Coffee Mornings with our local churches, taking place on the first Wednesday of each month. The outings are attended by Miss Katama, the St Mary’s chaplain as well as a group of Chaplaincy reps.

The morning is advertised within and around the parish and is aimed at local residents as well as the elderly, and takes place straight after morning mass. A selection of cakes and sweet treats go on sale for all to buy and the proceedings are collected by the parish to distribute back into to the community.

Here’s to many more Coffee Mornings and making a difference in our community!
