We were very  proud to host our My Future….. Conference to enable Year 11 students before their GCSE exams to connect their learning in school with success in their future. Students spent time understanding how many opportunities there are for them in the world beyond school, hearing about the careers of over 100 Alumnae who are achieving in all areas of the working world and spending time considering their own skills and qualities and what they would like to do in the future beyond school or university.

Students heard from Ursuline Alumnae; Jennifer Anafi-Acquah, Science Researcher at Oxford Scientific Films, Rose Steerwood, National Account Executive at COTY, Polly Billington, CEO UK100 Environmental Network and Devina Paul, Partner Galvanise Technology Start Up Consultancy. Speakers also include Emma Bucknall, London Office Manager at Dropbox and Aisling Ledwith, Ask Project Co-ordinator at Education and Employers..

Students were hugely engaged throughout the morning and their own personal manifestos for the future, setting out how the actions they can take now to achieve success in their future.
