Other Information: Mount St Mary’s College is a vibrant co-educational boarding and day school in the Catholic tradition, welcoming and catering for the needs of children aged 11-18 from all denominations in a truly ecumenical and happy environment. Founded in 1842 by Fr Randall Lythgoe, the Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus, the College is set in beautiful surroundings on the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire borders. Only a few miles away is Barlborough Hall School, the preparatory school to Mount St Mary’s for children aged 3-11. Both schools are under the trusteeship of the Society of Jesus, more often known as the Jesuits. Our ethos and vision allows us to provide every opportunity for a quality, seamless education, developing the whole child to encourage creativity, diversity and individuality so that our pupils mature into confident, balanced and responsible men and women. Mount St Mary's is proudly non-selective, but great emphasis is placed on ensuring that each pupil attains academic success. Final GCSE and A Level grades often outstrip the predictions offered by the nationally recognised ALIS and YELLIS schemes, run by Durham University, leading to positive value-added scores. You can view our GCSE and A Level examination results from 2011 here. Every year, many of our pupils go on to top universities. Recently, pupils left to study subjects including dentistry, architecture, medicine and law, the latter being a popular choice for three of our leavers. University destinations included Warwick, Manchester, Sheffield, UCL, York, Bristol and Durham among others. At GCSE, class sizes are maintained at 20 pupils or below, ensuring attention to the individual. Ability setting in core compulsory subjects allow pupils to progress at an appropriate pace, stretching the most able and supporting those who require extra guidance. There have been several changes in the last year to ensure that Mount St Mary's provides its pupils with the best possible options for academic success. Biology, Chemistry and Physics are studied separately, allowing pupils to opt for one, two or three sciences and giving a more secure basis for those who may wish to pursue, for example, sciences or medicine at university. The "Enhanced Studies" programme, which sits alongside GCSE subjects ensures pupils acquire the necessary skills and understanding to become independent learners and to make the most of all learning opportunities. The programme is internally developed with the specific needs of our cohort in mind. At A level, the introduction of Further Maths has added to the already broad range of A level choices and provides a suitable challenge for our most able pupils. Again, class sizes are small to ensure that each pupil achieves success, supported by a tutor team who monitor pupil progress and provide guidance.
