Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Immaculate Heart of Mary School. We are a warm and welcoming learning community with a long and proud history. Being a small school, we pride ourselves on delivering a high quality and personalised education.   

IHM is a nurturing, inclusive and family-oriented school united in faith, learning and culture. Our school has a positive reputation for close partnerships with parents, a strong Catholic ethos, excellent staff, and provision of a child centred and innovative curriculum. Our professional and motivated staff deliver excellent teaching and learning focussed on individual engagement, progress, and achievement.

We value our strong Catholic identity and joyfully celebrate this together with our diverse community. Everything we do at IHM is based on the values drawn from a Heart Spirituality and supported by our pillars of ‘love, hope, connectedness, inclusivity and justice’. We build strong relationships between the school, families, parish, and the local and wider community, living out our school mission together of ‘striving to be God’s heart here on Earth’.

At IHM children are at the centre of all we do. They are both encouraged and challenged to do their best, to develop their individual strengths and talents and a love of learning. Our commitment is to nurture them as thriving people, capable learners and leaders for the world God desires.

I warmly welcome you to Immaculate Heart of Mary Primary School.  We look forward to partnering with you in building an inspiring learning community where every child will flourish today and in the future.


Kind regards,
