125th Anniversary | St Paul's Commemorative Service

2019 marks the 125th anniversary of the City of London School for Girls, and celebrations began with a commemorative service at St Paul’s Cathedral on 22 January.

The whole school attended the service, as well as alumnae, former staff, friends and supporters of the school, among others. Before the service began, alumna and current Senior Organ Scholar at University of Oxford, Áine Kennedy, played the organ, while other alumnae joined current students to sing in the choirs. The service included a multi-faith element involving a number of students and ended with a blessing by The Bishop of London, The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE.

More photographs of the service are available to view in our Media Gallery.

This was the first of many events planned for the anniversary year, including a celebratory music concert on 12 March at the Barbican.
