Support us with your expertise
In a fast changing and competitive global market we encourage our alumni, parents and friends of the School to share their knowledge, skills and experience with our pupils past and present.
Careers advice is invaluable in whatever form it takes. We hold careers evenings that focus on specific areas such as Finance, Law and Health related professions.
