From the St. Mary's Menston, a Catholic Voluntary Academy
I'm excited to tell you about St. Mary's Menston.
I consider it a privilege and an honour to lead the school as headteacher.
St. Marys has a prosperous background and is constantly improving.
Our goal is to continue to grow and offer a Catholic education of the highest calibre possible while giving each student the best possible attention, assistance, and results.
Our teaching and counselling are centred on the principles of fidelity, humility, truth, forgiveness, tolerance, dignity, service, and respect.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection, the school received an Outstanding rating.
The majority of our students will travel this path across seven years, entering our Sixth Form and then moving on to further study.
Being the headteacher of St. Marys makes me proud and happy.
As you are aware, St. Mary's is a member of The Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust, a collaboration between ten schools.
For the upcoming academic year, I will serve as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Trust's 10 schools for three days per week.
As a result, I shall be based at St. Mary's as Headteacher for two days each week, and for the 2019–2020 academic year, Miss Hattersley will assume the role of Head of School, taking charge of St. Mary's daily management.
