Virgin Mary Girls' National School
Welcome to Virgin Mary Girls' National School, a warm and friendly school where pupils feel happy, secure, challenged and valued, and where the exciting journey to becoming a life-long learner begins.
We aim to make a difference by working in partnership with families, and the wider community to cultivate a love of life and learning in all our children.
We strive to make learning fun and a natural part of life for our children. We want children to become confident and independent learners with inquiring minds, and develop as individuals to their full potential; therefore, we expect them to give their best in all that they do.
We believe that children should be encouraged to develop positive, caring attitudes towards themselves, each other and the wider community of which they are part. We work together to create a school where positive behaviour is encouraged, and all are treated with respect, understanding and sensitivity.
Staff, children, parents are all proud to be part of our school. We are committed to improving standards through promoting high expectations, and seek to build on what we do well in our quest for continuous improvement.
Our website offers only an introduction to the experience we offer girls at Virgin Mary Girls' National School. Therefore, we would like to extend a warm invitation to both you and your daughter to visit our school and see the children at work and play for yourselves.
We look forward to welcoming you to Virgin Mary Girls' National School.

Here at Virgin Mary G.N.S we transported ourselves to the land of books, as we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite literary characters.
