Do You Need a Helping Hand?

As part of our mission to offer support and encouragement to pupils long after they've left LEH, we are now inviting alumnae to apply for the Emerging Talent Award 2021.

The deadline for applications for the grant is Friday 6 November 2021.  To fill out a form, or to find out more information, please see the Emerging Talent page on this website.

The Award aims to celebrate and promote the spirit of LEH. The school ethos is to encourage pupils to stretch themselves to become their best, most confident selves; to be supported by strong role models and be inspired by their peers; and to have the freedom to experiment and take on new challenges.

In recent years, alumnae have used the funds to undertake an impressive array of challenges; from mounting an exhibition of new artworks, to editing a documentary, and from developing a new piece of theatre to recording an album. Medical students have been supported to undertake elective placements or even organise training for fellow junior doctors, while a couple of entrepreneurial alumnae used the funds to launch an online beauty business and to get a children's clothing company up and running.

An award of up to £1,000 is available to an alumna in any field, who is looking to embark on a new project, undertake further professional training, help fund a placement, or is perhaps a business woman or fledgling entrepreneur needing our support. We’re looking to recognise the most deserving Remarkable Women, who have worked hard and have a real capability in their chosen area. Hope Favours the Bold.
