International Women's Day 2019 - 'Women Who Dare for Greatness' Speed Mentoring Event

On Tuesday 5th March our school pupils thoroughly enjoyed their opportunity to meet a wide mixture of inspirational successful women, where they were able to ask them top tips and questions. The programme was in Speed Mentoring format with 14 tables and 7 students each, together we combined Introductions, a De-brief and Lessons learned.

Principal Ms Curtis gave a warm welcome after the School Choir set a nice and calm atmosphere for students to arrive into the Assembly hall.
