    Re: School or Schools?

    Speakers of American English typically use a period/full stop after 'St' and British English speakers don't.

    I don't think there's a saint called 'Marry'. You probably mean 'Mary'.

    Each group has the names of two schools, and as they are names, 'Secondary' should be capitalised.

    Re: School or Schools?

    The word "School" is also normally included in the name, and we usually use the possessive.

    St Mary's Secondary School
    St Andrew's Secondary School
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
