Brick By Brick

Investing in the future

As we enter our 125th year, we are investing in our new Mary Ward Educational Suite - a major £6M capital development which will include four new classrooms to support our High Performance Learning 

This is the first major building project on the Senior School site in Bateman Street for 50 years!


Donate Now: Reserve Your Brick 


To involve our wider community in the development of this new project, we are thrilled to be launching our Brick-By-Brick Appeal 2023 which provides the opportunity to leave a personal legacy, and make your mark, on this stunning new facility.

Before 1 December 2023, when this appeal will close, we are inviting our pupils, current and former parents, our Pastonian alumnae, governors, staff, and other friends of St Mary's to support our fundraising efforts by sponsoring one of the salvaged Cambridge bricks from our previous 'Crush Building' which will be cleaned and re-used in the fabric of the new building.

In recognition of your sponsorship, your name and/or chosen designation will be inscribed on a bespoke donor recognition wall in the atrium of the new Mary Ward Educational Suite, welcoming all visitors and guests to St Mary’s. We will invite all of our sponsors to a private reception to celebrate the official opening of the Mary Ward Educational Suite and publish our donor wall on our website.

To make your personal mark – or perhaps to celebrate an old teacher, classmate, sibling, or other role model – please decide on your level of donation and style of inscription from the five available options below before clicking on the link to provide your personal text. You will then be asked to confirm your corresponding donation amount, or a higher amount should you wish. Donate Now: Personalise your inscription
