 Investors in People Gold Award

Principal Mrs M Cosgrove and senior teacher Mr M Fitzpatrick were presented with the Investors in People Gold Award at a ceremony at Belfast Castle.  It is with great pride that we as a school community have received the Investors in People ‘Gold Standard Award’ and are one of the very few schools in Northern Ireland to have achieved this accolade.


An ‘Investors in People’ organisation recognises the combined achievements of all staff, teaching, non-teaching, ancillary and auxiliary in ensuring St Mary’s create an environment that is proactive in embracing change and responds positively to all initiatives and celebrates its success. The comprehensive report that supported the Gold Award recognises a culture in the school in which staff have a very strong sense of empowerment and responsibility for providing high standards of teaching, learning and support for every pupil.  Praise was given for sustained academic success and the lead the school has taken in new developments within the school and the wider community.  As a school we continue to work together in partnership with parents, other schools in our Area Learning Community, Business and Financial Institutions to ensure your daughter receives every opportunity to reach her full potential.
