Emerging Talent Award

We are now accepting applications for the LEH Alumnae Emerging Talent Award 2020. The deadline for submitting your completed application form is midday on Monday 16 November 2020.

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. 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 has a talent 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. And remember - Hope Favours The Bold!
