Learning resources

There’s lots to explore amongst St Mary’s roof bosses, for young and old alike.

Here are some resources and materials for teachers, parents and children. We hope you enjoy these activities. Click on the images or buttons to download them.

Colour in

St Mary’s ceiling is usually full of colour, but five of the curious carvings in its ceiling need repainting! Can you colour them all in?

Here are five especially made colouring in sheets to choose from.


Take this fun challenge and try to find sixteen hidden words related to the bosses. Good luck!

Design your own boss

Each and every one of the 625 bosses in St Mary’s tells a story. Get creative with your own design. We’d love to see what you come up with. If you don’t have a printer then you could just make your design on a piece of paper.

Please upload images of your artwork here:
