On Thursday 20th June, we celebrated the launch of our School Street. It was a brilliant occasion, with games from Sustrans, expert advice about cycling, Bikers’ Breakfast, Dr Bike and a few special guests! Thank you to everyone who came to help us celebrate and a special thanks goes to Mrs Leith who put it all together.
This Thursday is Clean Air Day and we will be celebrating with a range of exciting activities! See the poster below for more details:
As you will have noticed, our School Street is up and running! It is the first in Westminster and it is great to have less traffic at the start and end of the school day. The road is still open to cyclists, so make sure you look both ways before crossing.
Councillors Tim Mitchell and Iain Bott came down to see it in action, and we will be having an official opening event very soon!

Mrs Leith won a Champion award from Sustrans for all the work she has done to promote sustainable travel for the school. We are really proud of her, especially as there were only 10 awards given out across London, and she is the only person in Westminster to win an award!
On 5th December, Heidi, Mohammed and Myra attended the 2018 Top Schools accreditation seminar and awards ceremony at London’s Living Room at City Hall. St Mary’s won a ‘School of the Region’ award in recognition of our achievement in active and safer travel initiatives.
