Did you know that the first schools for girls to offer the same education as boys in this country were established by our religious order? All while having to hide their true identity because Catholicism was illegal!

Using QR codes throughout the exhibition, you are invited to discover more about the trailblazing women of the Bar Convent story whose bravery and determination made history locally, nationally and around the world.

As part of ‘York Trailblazers’ citywide sculpture trail.
