Great news! In 2014 over  22% of SMC pupils successfully achieved a place at one of Torbay’s Grammar schools.

“The Gospel message which stresses reaching out to the poor and the vulnerable, the needy and the often excluded, lies at the heart of this school. It is what makes it a very special school.” Quote from 2011 Diocesan Inspection.

“Parental confidence is high and pupils, including those that have only just joined the school, report feeling exceptionally safe and secure.” Quote from 2011 OFSTED Inspection.

Our mission is to create a safe and happy school with a Catholic ethos in the heart of the Brixham community. Pupils and staff are encouraged to reach their full potential, in faith and learning, in a nurturing, stimulating and rewarding environment.

The School was placed 549th in the Daily Telegraph top 1000 primary schools in England, based on 2013 Key Stage 2 SATs results. These results put the School in the top 4% of schools in the country.
