How to check your School Email at home

1. Go to our website (you can get to it by googling 'st marys menston') and on the 'menu bar' which is on the top right of every page choose the link saying Email. There is also a button on the homepage under the 'banner' which takes you to your email. It looks like this:

Type in the following website address:

2. A grey login box will appear, type in your St. Mary's Menston ICT username and password (the same ones you use to log in to the computers at school) in the white spaces, then click on the button Log In

Note: the grey login box looks a bit different depending on which internet browser you are using

IMPORTANT: If the grey login box doesn't appear at all then this indicates that our email system isn't working.

Adding email to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch*

It is quick and easy to add your email to the Mail app. This can be in addition to other email accounts you already have.

1. Go to Settings (the icon is a grey cog)

2. Choose Mail, Contacts, Calendars (the icon is an envelope with a blue background)

3. Choose Add Account

4. Choose the option Exchange (one might think to choose the option but that does not work)


5. On the next screen fill it out as follows:

  • Email: your school email address which is in the format
  • Password: your school ICT password that you use to log in to school computers (remember this is CaSe SeNsItIvE)
  • Description: choose a descriptive name for this email account, eg 'school' or 'st marys'
