Lectures, Workshops & Keynote Speakers

We are delighted that so many alumnae choose to return to School to talk to current students about their lives and careers, and to run workshops on subjects as diverse as Medicine, Life Coaching, Finance, Artificial Intelligence, Computing & Maths, studying for an Arts degree, degree-level Apprenticeships, and so much more. It adds real value to the girls’ educational experience, and the sort of first-hand insight and breadth of knowledge that teachers simply cannot offer.

We are also honoured to host Old Girls as our Guest Speaker on Prizegiving and Commemoration day. It speaks volumes that we do not need to look beyond our own alumnae group to find superb speakers who are inspirational and accessible, and demonstrate the reward of ambition, hard work and determination.

We have hosted Fiona Sperry (MGC 1988 Leaver), a BAFTA nominated computer games entrepreneur to give the OGA Lecture in November; 10 Old Girls at the Careers Fair, including Mel Bles (MGC 1996), fashion photographer and Sarah Haywood (St James’s 1981), a global leader in event and wedding planning, who both gave talks; Ellie Hatt (2016), studying to be a Dentist at Liverpool University; and Caitlin Hughes (MGC 1998), CEO of Magnum Photos and non-executive Director of Juventus Football Club, who was our Guest Speaker at Prizegiving 2020. We are also delighted to have had as speakers, Sophie Grant (Mills, MGC 1999) in 2021, Kate Ferry (Kirkland, MGC 1991) in 2022 and Imogen Edwards-Jones (MGC 1986) in 2023.

Thank you to all Old Girls who volunteer their time in this way. It is much appreciated.
