Circle of Friends

As we move towards the 120th anniversary of the founding of St Mary’s School, Cambridge we have decided that the time is right to launch the St Mary’s School, Cambridge Circle of Friends.

Previously the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA), we have renamed and reimagined the association in line with Mary Ward’s own circle of friends.

The new Circle of Friends will allow parents, past and present, staff, past and present, and alumnae to be a part of the group, which supports the school in its fundraising endeavours and special school events, from the wonderful Christmas Fair to the fancy dress Fun Run.

We have so many wonderful, committed parents, staff and alumnae, that it is important to the school to be able to invite them to become involved in all aspects of the school life, such as welcoming new parents and girls to the school, clearly demonstrating the sentiment ‘once a St Mary’s Girl, always a St Mary’s Girl’!

The Circle of Friends’ mission is to connect all members of our school community and provide each part with the right events and communications to allow them to flourish in the coming months and years.

Date Event
Sunady 26 November, 11.30 am for 12 noon start Ice skating at the North Pole, Parker’s Piece, Cambridge. Dads and daughters, mums and brothers, dust off your skates and kick off the skating season with a special session at Cambridge’s very own outdoor skating rink, returning once again to Parker’s Piece for the winter holidays. Expect 45 minutes on the ice. There are mobile penguins to help first-time or unconfident skaters (for a charge) and kind and helpful marshals. Enjoy food and drink afterwards, on sale just opposite.
