• Senior
  • Sixth Form

We recognise the importance of preparing our girls for Sixth Form and University in September. With this in mind, we have created a set of online programmes for Year 11 and Year 13 to attend after the half-term break.

We want girls to feel confident and prepared for their next steps be that education or work. The online programmes aim to provide both subject-specific inspiration and support the core skills they will require moving forward.

OGA Lectures

As part of the OGA Lecturers for both Year 11 and 13 we are delighted to confirm the following Old Girls will be speaking:

Sarah Austin (1987 leaver)

Sarah was the youngest ever female director of Baring Asset Management in the early 2000s. After starting her family, she set up the Really Helpful Club which now has over 15,000 members: it is an online and offline network that connects its members socially and professionally.

They run many professional networking events, as well as a Back to Work programme to help talented women who want to return to work after having children to find a role that best suits their skill set and lifestyle.

Janice Lee Fang (1998 leaver)

Janice, based in Singapore, is the former Regional Communications Lead at TripAdvisor, and is now Asia Pacific Head of Communications at Spotify.

She worked in journalism prior to those roles and is now able to combine her love of hi-tech with writing.

Sue Forbes (1981 leaver)

Sue has had a fascinating career, which spans three completely different sectors. She joined the RAF after University as an Engineer Officer and was the first woman ever to receive the Queens Medal for the most outstanding Officer Cadet in the year.

She then decided to move on and pursue a career in Silicon Valley, working for McKinsey as a Management Consultant and then for various high-tech companies, starting in Product Management.

After 17 years she decided it was time for another change, and made her lifelong love of travelling and cameras into her job, becoming a nature photographer. She now visits countries all over the world, including some of the most remote areas, to capture moments on film. She was featured in the Natural History Museum Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.
