The Global Learning Programme
St. Mary's Menston has been asked to become an Expert Centre for the Global Learning Programme (GLP) in recognition for their longstanding commitment to global learning. Global learning has been embedded into the whole school ethos, into the curriculum and is very apparent in the school environment. For this reason, St. Mary's has been asked by the GLP to work with other schools and is looking for primary and secondary schools to join their network and become a partner school.

Global Learning Programme News Stories
Four St. Mary’s students were lucky enough to be a part of the Fairtrade Celebration Event which was held in the Banqueting Suite of Leeds Civic Hall on 9 March
We are delighted to announce that St. Mary’s has been awarded the British Council International School Award in recognition of our work bringing the world into the classroom.
Students came in their own clothes on Wednesday 29 June 2016 and the event benefited The Bambisanani Partnership and World Youth Day charities.
We have given much of the produce away as prizes for Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 activities.
The event will take place in our Staffroom and will raise money to help Simphiwe Ndlovu, our Bambisanani Teacher
