How to find us

Old Girls' Events

From year group reunions and the Old Girls’ Lax Match to online SHSK Society Talks and our established series of Professional Networking Events, we are proud to offer a varied and growing programme of alumnae events.

Professional Networking Events were launched in 2017 to support Old Girls by providing the chance to meet like-minded women working in the same sector. Networking events have seen alumnae bouncing ideas off one another and forging professional and social links. Our aim is that by strengthening these connections, we can share knowledge and ideas to achieve more, faster, and together.
