Fantastic careers event sparks creative energy

On Wednesday 18 April the Longton Hall was staged for a Creative Careers Event with over 20 exhibitors from the creative industries and further education. Pupils from year 9-13 in GDST schools, Sydenham School and Dulwich College were invited to meet and network with experts in a plethora of professions to discuss opportunities for their future career paths.

We were fortunate enough to have professionals from the fields of:

  • architecture
  • brand design
  • community arts
  • fashion
  • film/ tv set design
  • journalism
  • marketing
  • museums
  • music
  • photography
  • publishing
  • theatre

as well as seven further education institutions.

We were delighted that we had an alumna and several parents on the exhibitor list and we are very grateful to everyone who gave up their time to make it such a success – especially on such a blisteringly hot day! There was a real buzz in the hall and it was so exciting to see the girls feeling so passionate about their futures.

Special thanks to Mrs Pett for organising the whole event.
