The Big Top and the end of Year productions are one of the special things about St Mary's!
Every Summer our Year 6 pupils take part in a wonderful, musical performance. The event is made extra special by being staged in a Big Top on the school field with a full stage, lighting and special effects. The play runs for one afternoon and three nights and parents, friends, local playgroups and members of the local community all come to watch the performances, which are often sold out.
The play is always a highlight of the school year and a fantastic experience for the children. However we could not stage such an impressive event without the support of all of the school staff, parents, PTA, governors and other friends of St. Mary's who give up many hours of their time on an entirely voluntary basis, so a big thank you goes to them.
