The first female students were admitted to St John's in 1979, so in 2019 we're planning a wide range of events to mark this special milestone in the history of our College. Join us as we celebrate this anniversary and reflect on our ongoing commitment to equality and diversity.

“Since 1555, St John’s has striven to provide excellence in education and research. In this 40th anniversary of admitting women, let us take the opportunity of stepping back and reflecting on how we can ensure that a commitment to equality and diversity is at the core of our mission.”
