St Mary’s is part of the Cross Keys Academy Trust which is an Umbrella Academy Trust meaning that there is an autonomy to each school.  We have recently undergone an expansion project in order to cater for the rapid growth of Burton Latimer.  There has been a school on this site since 1581 and we are proud to be carrying the torch for education in Burton Latimer.  We have a mix of buildings and facilities, from Victorian to our new building which is big and state of the art!


Our school is located in the heart of Burton Latimer with Sainsbury’s only 3 minutes walk away which is handy for your weekly shop or lunch that you have forgotten!  Subway is also a favourite as is chip shop Friday and all just over the road.  The gym, which is in eye line of the school, is there to help to your waistline after all the treats!
