Working Towards a World Class Catholic Education

Headteacher’s Welcome

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.
