St Mary’s is establishing growing professional links with St Mary’s University, Twickenham. As part of our school’s commitment to high-quality professional development, this term 12 members of staff are embarking on the MA in Catholic School Leadership; which will be delivered by St Mary’s University at our school. This is an exciting development for our school as we continue on the journey to become an outstanding centre for learning.
Dr John Lydon, Programme Director writes: “St Mary's University is delighted to be forming a collaboration with St Mary's Catholic High School Croydon. The establishment of an MA in Catholic School Leadership Centre at the school is the first significant step in our developing relationship.”
In order to cement our relationship, at the start of term all staff spent a full day of training, as guests of the university, at its renown Strawberry Hill campus, including a keynote address from Dr John Lydon on the importance of ‘Christ Centred Leadership’ in Catholic education today.
