Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Academy


I am delighted you are thinking about applying to St Mary’s Sixth form. We are incredibly proud to be the only school based sixth form in the Fylde, providing a unique Catholic post 16 education.

Our mission is to provide an outstanding whole-person education through which all are challenged to grow in wisdom, understanding, self-esteem and closeness to God. Each student is known individually, accesses high quality teaching and learning and enrichment opportunities, is encouraged to strive to achieve their best and given the personalised attention and active support to succeed.

We celebrate high levels of academic success, with a significant number of students joining University courses at Oxford, Cambridge and Russell group Universities or pursuing degrees in competitive fields such as medicine or law. Similarly, career pathways after A levels are actively supported; recently students have been successful in gaining places on apprenticeships at BAE Systems, Siemens, the Local Authority, Virgin Airways and the Civil Service to name but a few.

Our students are fortunate to be one of the first cohorts to enjoy our amazing £23 million building, including new facilities such as the Sixth Form Science lab, well-resourced media studies suite, a breath-taking Sixth Form art studio, a state of the art drama theatre and outdoor stage area, not forgetting the Sixth Form social learning space with its deli bar and kitchen facilities. St Mary’s offers a forward thinking Sixth Form, small enough for you to be known individually but large enough to provide a breadth of courses and experienced staff to help you on your journey.

We look forward to receiving your application and welcoming you to discuss how St Mary’s can support you on this next crucial phase of your education.
