Career Events in School

We (ordinarily) welcome alumnae, parents and friends of LEH to support our regular careers activities throughout the year – either at one of these events or at ad hoc careers sessions for smaller groups of girls. Many will be moving online of the time being and we will keep this page updated accordingly. Please contact careers@lehs.org.uk or message Alison Matthews via this community if you think you can help!

Careers Evening

This is the Career Department’s flagship event held jointly with Hampton School in January and attracting more than 60 delegates, many of whom are ex-pupils or current parents, offering advice on a broad range of career paths. Recent speakers have included architects, barristers, civil servants, economists, fund managers, GPs, TV producers and scientists, with many blue-chip companies represented such as JPMorgan, Net-a-Porter and Unilever.

Higher Education Fair

Each year representatives from the top 30 UK universities visit LEH to talk informally to students about higher education options and offer advice on making a good application. The delegates are well informed and the girls enjoy researching the different institutions. The HE Fair aims to encourage students to prepare for university Open Days in the summer term.

American Uni Talks

We hold annual talks about the application process for American Universities, including advice on sports scholarships, financial aid and academic scholarships. We also collaborate with Hampton School to provide preparation courses for the ACT admissions tests. In addition to this our alumnae who are currently studying the USA return to answer questions for those considering American Universities.

Specialist Careers Event

This annual event provides an in-depth view of career paths of alumnae following a particular degree. The most recent event was a joint venture with the Music and Drama Departments for careers in the Creative Arts. This included an opera singer, multiple actors, casting directors and producers.

Careers Advice

LEH Alumnae discuss their career paths since leaving LEH, and share advice on how to succeed in their chosen career.
