At the end of June students in Year 9 put down their footballs, stopped their conversations and made a fantastic statement as a year group.

After working with several students looking at how we show our support to each other as a school community, Stand To Support was created.

At the sound of the whistle at 12:15pm students were asked to stand on the half way line of the football pitch as a united line. The aim was to show that they would support each other no matter what issues they faced throughout their time at Mount St Mary’s and beyond. Whether this was supporting mental health, tackling racism or supporting LGBTQ, our students did not disappoint.

As a Year Leader it was an incredibly proud moment to see such a strong sense of community as we move forwards on our Mount St Mary’s journey.
