Inspiring the Next Generation

Five of our former students, who studied Geography at University, are the latest of our alumnae to be featured on departmental notice boards around LEH to help inspiree pupils about future careers.

The displays, which are springing up in the HALE (Humanities, Art, Languages and English) corridors, as well as the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) areas, are designed to prompt current students to think about life after LEH and give real-world examples of how the subjects and skills they are studying can be put to use.

"Our alumnae play a really important role in inspiring and encouraging our students," says Nicky Hampstead, Head of Higher Education and Careers. "It makes it so much more real and accessible to discover that the women doing these wide-ranging, varied and exciting careers, have all sat in the same classrooms as you, and have shared the same experiences as you. If they have done it - so can you."

Alumnae have long played an important role in uplifting and enthusing pupils, with a regular calendar of talks during careers lesson, as well as attending the popular annual Careers Evening as delegates. But this latest initiative sees Mrs Hampstead also working with departmental heads to produce alumnae testimonials that can be used in subject-specific guides to get students thinking about how the skills they are developing in school are applicable in the workplace, especially in jobs that might not be directly relevant to the subjects being studied.

If you are interested in giving back by attending the Careers Fair in late February 2025, or would like to give a careers talk in school, please email us at alumnae@lehs.org.uk.

If you are logged into your Holles Connect account, you will be able to see some more of the alumnae noticeboards below.
