About us
Welcome to the St Mary Federation in Norfolk
The St Mary Federation is made up of three village primary schools set in a beautiful corner of northwest Norfolk. We officially became a federation on 1 May 2015 but we have been working together for some time now.
We're passionate about continuing to offer outstanding education in our villages. The schools have all been providing education for over 150 years!
The villages are either on the coast or within 10 minutes drive from it and they are approximately 30 minutes from King's Lynn.  You can drive between the furthest apart schools, Brancaster and Sedgeford, in 20 minutes and they are all within an eight mile distance from Hunstanton, which is the nearest small town.
Our schools officially feed into Smithdon High School in Hunstanton though children from Brancaster School also choose to go to Alderman Peel High School in Wells-next-the-Sea.  The Smithdon cluster is very active and strongly supportive of its schools www.smithdoncluster.com
