50th Anniversary Celebrations 2014–15

We celebrated our 50th Anniversary during the entire Academic Year 2014–15.

St. Mary's Menston first opened its doors to pupils in November 1964 and was officially blessed and opened by the Rt. Rev. Mgr. George Patrick Dwyer, Bishop of Leeds on 3 July 1965.

It was a very special and enjoyable year!
