Working Towards a World Class Catholic Education
At St. Mary's Menston Catholic Voluntary Academy we provide an outstanding education for pupils aged 11–18, rooted in Christian values. We serve the parish churches of Addingham, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Horsforth, Ilkley, Otley, Pudsey and Yeadon.
St. Mary’s Menston has a successful past and is highly successful at the present. Our aim is to develop even further to be a world class school giving the best care, support and outcomes to our students. Please contact us for more information.

Think about how God would want you to speak and act today.
Theme: ￼The sign of the Cross
The Sign of the Cross expresses blessing. It symbolizes God blessing us, God embracing us with blessings. And in this same sign we express our belief in God. In the Sign of the Cross we embrace our God with mind and heart and all of our strength.
The Word: A verse from the book of John (NT)
“Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another.”
