Now in its third year, the Emerging Talent Award was established 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. To keep those much-cherished tenets alive, we encourage alumnae to nominate themselves or each other if they would benefit from the support of the alumnae community.
Awards of up to £1,000 are available to an alumna who needs our support, be that a business women looking to change direction, a fledgling entrepreneur, or maybe someone who wants to re-train or pursue a new interest, or complete a long-term project. We’re looking to recognise the most deserving remarkable women, who have worked hard and have a real capability in their chosen area.
In 2018 our worthy winners were Antia Shri and Catherine Cartwright. Anita Sri is a 5th year medical student who used her award to help fund once in a life-time training opportortunities at two of the best paediatric hospitals in the world. Catherine Cartwright is a multi-disciplinary artist, who used her award to help fund a new project called 'Reclaim' featuring women in recovery from abuse. To read their inspiring reports, and those of the 2017 winners, please visit our Emerging Talent Award page.
