It is hoped these trips will help to enrich the education of girls at the school, helping them to become articulate, independent, questioning, and tolerant.
During the Autumn term, the school hosted their Festival of Literature and Languages, a fortnight crammed with acting, debating, writing, and reading related events.
A careers carousel will also be held for year 10 and 11 students which will be held on Monday 7 March from 10.30am.
The school have approximately 25 STEM ambassadors coming into school.
Students will visit each ambassador group and they will then ask a series of questions to find out about job roles, entry requirements and skills needed to pursue a career. The main aim of the day is for them be more aware of the vast array of careers open to them.
