St Mary’s Brigg


St Mary’s School has had a presence in Brigg since 1874.  


Its first classes were in the Town Hall.  In 1890 it is minuted that “The school will become a “free school” in lieu of which Lincolnshire Council will pay the sum of ten shillings each year for each pupil.”


It had occupied a number of buildings in the town until, in 1966, the school moved to Grammar School Road where it has flourished growing from 140 to 180 pupils.  


The school is looking forward to becoming an Academy and more success in the future.

Our school can be summed up in the following words:

Peace – School is a very calm and peaceful place. It is a place of forgiveness and reconciliation.


Tenderness – All members of our school community strive to be kind, caring and gentle towards everyone they meet.


Vocation – We work together to ensure that all individuals in our community discover and understand the special mission given to them by God.


A Desire for God – We know that we will only find real truth and happiness through God.


A Love of Learning – We want learning to be fun and purposeful. We value all learning experiences. Lifelong learning is encouraged throughout our school community.


We ensure that we take PRIDE in everything we do. We do everything to the best of our ability and keep nothing back.


We want to share our good work, up to date news and information about our school with you through our website. We hope you find it useful and informative. If you have any suggestions on how to improve our site, please let us know.


St Mary’s is a Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nottingham, teaching boys and girls from the ages of four to eleven and organised into seven classes.


It was established in 1874 and after many years in different locations in the town moved to its present site in 1966. In 1972 it expanded from four classes to its current size. It attracts pupils from a very wide area of North Lincolnshire.


In 2013 Ofsted said “Behaviour is outstanding. Pupils have remarkably positive attitudes to learning, and they get on extremely well together. They are able to reflect very carefully on their own behaviour and show great sensitivity to the needs of others. They respond extremely well to the positive role models provided by staff.”
