This week we were delighted to welcome back former pupils who left South Hampstead in 2013/2014 for an alumnae reception.
The event was organised by our alumnae captains – one of the many leadership roles available to Upper Sixth students. Dozens of alumnae came back for the event: a chance for them to reunite and reconnect, whilst also giving the current Upper Sixth an opportunity to ask questions about life after South Hampstead, university and careers. The girls welcomed the chance to quiz their predecessors who are starting out in a variety of interesting professions, including Finance, Graphic Design, Human Rights, Management Consultancy, Software Engineering and Teaching.
Many of the returning alumnae had never seen the Hopkins-designed building, so were keen to explore the school. After drinks and canapés in the lower exhibition area, they were given tours of the 7-storey building by current students.
Together with the Girls’ Day School Trust, our network of over 70,000 alumnae spans over 100 countries around the world – a fantastic resource for pupils and former pupils to connect with like-minded women and to make useful links and contacts. To enable every GDST Sixth Form student to connect with our alumnae family, we’ve teamed up with Rungway, the mentoring app – at the touch of a button, our students have a way of asking some of the burning questions they have about study and life after school, anywhere and at any time.
