Minibus to Wimbledon Tennis semi-final 2017
St Mary's were fortunate enough to get tickets for Wimbledon this year. (2017) They teamed up with Handcross Park Preparatory School, who were able to provide a minibus so that everyone could travel up together. Eight lucky pupils got to watch, among others, Johanna Konta get through to her first Wimbledon semi-final on a rain interupted day.
