St. Mary's Menston

Our Mission, Vision and Values


We are a pilgrim school and we journey with Mary to become the person God intends us to be.

At the heart of our mission is character education.  It is our desire that St Mary’s is a place where we draw out the many gifts and talents of our individual pupils and enable them to grow in virtue so they become the well-rounded individuals God intends them to be, the very best version of themselves, and ultimately, they are happy and flourish in life.

Our mission recognises that the journey towards human flourishing takes time and is like a pilgrimage where we are united in our purpose to challenge and nurture our pupils on that journey of self-discovery and personal growth. On this journey, we enable them to develop their character focused on intellectual virtues, performance virtues and community virtues.

Ambition, Opportunity and Faith are fundamental principles within our mission which together allow us to flourish.  Click on the images below to learn more about them.
