From the five-year-olds in Pre Prep III to the 16-year-old GCSE students, in uniform all children are visibly a part of one community. Even in Nursery, where children are aged three and four, we see clear benefits in having a school uniform, albeit a more comfortable, practical version.
The Latin wording beneath the crest – Sine Macula – literally translates as ‘without stain or blemish’. In modern English it means ‘immaculate’, and that is how our pupils look when turned out.
We work with Logo Leisurewear, an experienced Sheffield-based school uniform supplier, who operate an online school uniform store and a shop in Sheffield. They will help find the perfect fit for your child, from school trousers to blazers.
Mount St Mary’s College is a happy school, a school with more than 175 years of tradition and heritage. Building on our Jesuit roots we teach our students to be grateful and to be generous. The Mount is a school where everyone is learning because everyone is growing.
Students aged 11-14 in year groups 7, 8 and 9 study a broad programme of academic subjects. The focus at this stage is ensuring a solid and thorough understanding in the core subject and skill areas, ensuring students are fully equipped to tackle their next steps confidently and successfully.
GCSE options at Mount St Mary’s College open up a whole new world to students. Over two years pupils have the opportunity to specialise in their areas of academic interest, taught by highly experienced and dedicated staff who are their mentors and guides. They have the opportunity to be challenged and to succeed.
The GCSE experience is about academic success and also personal development. Students enjoy a wealth of opportunities in events, clubs and societies.
With expert careers, A-level and university advice, students have the opportunity to make the right GCSE choices for their futures and at the end of their two years take on exciting new challenges in the Sixth Form and beyond.
Never more so that in the Sixth Form, years 12 and 13, we expect the highest standards of effort and determination from our students. ‘Mount Spirit’ – the desire always to find more in each situation – means that excellence is always our aim. The A-level programme takes subject specialisms to a higher level in preparation for university or future careers.
