In Her Shoes

To celebrate the 120th anniversary of St Mary's School, Cambridge our 'In Her Shoes' initiative celebrates the achievements of our foundress Mary Ward

120th Anniversary logoIn Her Shoes

In our 120th anniversary year (2018), our students travelled far and wide, on trips and engaging in local activities. As they did, they reflected on the herculean 1,500 mile walk to Rome, undertaken by Mary Ward to present her vision for educating women to three different Popes.

Our 'Mary Ward' shoes accompanied students on their travels and expeditions, clocking up many miles over the course of the year.

The shoes were created by our Junior School and Senior School students, with designs highlighting some of the key characteristics of a Mary Ward School, which underpin our school ethos and shape everyday life at St Mary's School.
