Request from St. Mary's Menston Academy Council:

Voluntary Contributions Scheme

We are very grateful for the support we receive from St. Mary’s parents for the development of our buildings. Our original school buildings are over 50 years old and in constant need of repair and development. Without your support it will be impossible to continue to develop the school environment for the benefit of our students.

We are inviting new parents to join our highly successful Voluntary Contributions Scheme.  

Most families contribute to the scheme by monthly direct debit of £5, £10 or £15 per family. Any contribution, however big or small, will be gratefully received.

Please find below a Standing Order Form and Gift Aid Declaration which can be completed and returned to school in an envelope marked for the Finance Department. 


We spend voluntary contributions on projects that improve the environment for our pupils: such as decorating classrooms and corridors; refurbishing toilets; ICT equipment.

In 2016-17 our focus is to improve our dining facilities.  We will be investing in a new, fixed servery and a refurbishment of the Sixth Form Common Room to include a new catering outlet.
 
These development will provide a more relaxed eating experience for our students.


Although the scheme is entirely voluntary, we are grateful for the continued support of our school community, families and friends.


“It is our task to ensure that our schools provide a safe environment for children and young people. Our responsibility towards those entrusted to us for their Christian formation demands nothing less.”
— Pope Benedict XVI
