Message from our Churches
St Mary & St Pancras Church of England Primary School welcomes children and families from all faiths and non- . The school has a strong and historic relationship with two local churches: St Mary’s and St Pancras, who have have served the community in Somers Town ever since it was built. Originally founded in 1837 and 1884, our two church schools were merged in 1951.
We seek to provide an education directed to the growth of the whole child, fostering a love for wisdom and truth, integration of faith, culture, and life. St Mary & St Pancras C of E Primary School is a peaceful and happy school, illuminated by the light of faith, where each child knows that they are important and cherished. The School serves with compassion and strives for potential. St Mary and St Pancras School fully reflects the diversity of the area-we believe every child matters to God. We celebrate the cultural and religious diversity of our school community where children and adults can flourish in an environment of mutual co-operation and respect. We seek to provide an education rooted in our Christian Vision and Values, and we hope that the children will grow in spirituality and wisdom as they learn, enjoying all the opportunities the school offers to explore faith and join in worship and prayer together.
This is a happy and peaceful school, a place of openness, love and respect which enables children to develop their potential in a safe and encouraging environment. Once a week an assembly in school is led by either Fr Paschal Worton (Vicar of St Mary’s) or the Vicar of St Pancras New Church. The children attend worship in Church and we celebrate the major Christian festivals – such as Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Easter and Harvest – at one of our two churches.
In addition, both our Vicars are members of the governing body, and the church councils appoint several other governors.
