We at St Mary’s are immensely proud of our Old Girls, their successful and often influential careers, the ground-breaking paths they have trod, the risks they have taken, the contributions they have made to society and the inspiration they provide to future generations of Old Girls.
In our first publication of St Mary’s Women, we highlight the careers of just some of the exceptional Old Girls who have graduated from St Mary’s since 1997. Theirs are compelling and inspirational stories. 
We look forward to future similar publications which further illustrate the diversity of our Old Girls. The one thing that links them, however, is the years they have spent exploring ideas, developing as people and enjoying the experience that form a St Mary’s education.
