School History

St. Mary's is the Primary School of St Joseph's Roman Catholic Parish. The church is situated half a mile away from the school. It was founded in 1871 by Father Richard Davis, on a small site at the junction of Forlease Road and Bridge Street, Maidenhead.

The school moved to a site at St Joseph's Church in 1882. In September 1974 we moved to our present site with more spacious accommodation, a large playing field, outdoor heated swimming pool and pleasant surroundings. The St. Mary's Catholic Pre-School, for pupils aged three years to five years, is located in our grounds. Many of our pupils spend their pre-school years there and we enjoy close links with each other.

St. Mary's school has an excellent record of service to the Catholic population of the area.

We are a division of the Frassati Catholic Academy Trust within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth and situated in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.


"Pupils speak with enthusiasm and pride
about the school. They feel safe and cared for by the staff...
They enjoy coming to school and value their friendship with other pupils"
