St Mungo’s Academy
Close Menu


As you may know, St Mungo's Academy was established in 1858 by The Marist Brothers to provide education for impoverished young people. This is a proud tradition which we maintain by being a part of the Marist International Organisation. In September, our new Marist Leaders and a number of our Senior Marist Mentors had the opportunity to visit France and see where the founder of the Marist brothers, Marcellin Champagnat lived and set up the first Marist community.

During the trip, students developed their leadership skills through a range of team building activities and shared their Marist journey with other Marist Leaders from Ireland and Scotland.

The video below, gives an insight into our students’ activities and experiences:

Our Caritas group of young people undertake numerous activities throughout the year to achieve their award.  These included: 

  • Presenting at Catholic Education Week masses; 

  • Producing a bulletin which they shared with local parishes and tutor activities to highlight this; 

  • Representing the school at interfaith prayer services respecting the rights of young people to practice their religion; 

  • Organising Lenten rosary services in the school oratory; 

Our new S6 caritas candidates recently visited St Mary’s chapel for the Caritas Welcome Mass. Over 20 of our young people became commissioned in a special service delivered by Archbishop Nolan. All schools in Glasgow with a Caritas group were in attendance. Pupils also received their Caritas badges and enjoyed some peaceful reflection before they embark on this special journey throughout S6. We wish our S6 Caritas pupils well and look forward to seeing them flourish within our school and local faith communities.


Glasgow Schools Forum  

Young people from St Mungo’s continue to play an active role in the Glasgow Schools Forum which provides them the opportunity to have their views heard on a range of issues affecting them such as outdoor learning, the history of Glasgow and the environment.  Their most recent participation involved looking at ‘Glasgow as a Classroom’ to support wider awareness of the environment around them and how they can change or influence this.  Our students have been complimented on the creativity of their ideas and their enthusiastic partnership working with young people from all over the city.

The Equality and Equity Focus Group is a pupil-led group of young people dedicated to promoting The Equality Act within St. Mungo's Academy. 

The group was initially made up of representatives from our Senior Phase learners who have since recruited a number of enthusiastic new members from our BGE classes. The group are looking at specific ways in which they can promote Equality and Equity within the school community in the new academic session and are looking forward to celebrating the diversity within our school through a range of new initiatives and projects.
