Trinity has been celebrating a decade of co-educational excellence at Sixth Form level, and we were thrilled with the wonderful turnout for our recent Girls’ Reunion.
The girls in attendance ranged from current Sixth Form students to those who left over ten years ago and are now embarking on their chosen careers, reports Donna Lewis, Alumni Relations Manager:
“It was fantastic to see our alumnae networking with current Sixth Form girls; offering careers advice and discussing their professions.
“A panel discussion saw former students Jess O’Sullivan, Katey Fisher, Eleanor Lewis, and Deesha Ganguli, answer questions on topics ranging from tackling the patriarchy, to their visions for gender equality in the workplace and the importance of a mentor.
“We then settled down to enjoy a delicious three-course meal in Trinity Concert Hall. We had the pleasure of watching an entertaining video, introduced by former governor, Lord Gavin Barwell, by former Headmaster Mark Bishop and Joe and Ros McKee who are now all working at schools in China. Lord Barwell and Mark Bishop were both instrumental in encouraging the Trinity governors to admit girls to the Sixth Form.
“The atmosphere was fantastic, and it was great to see our guests enjoying themselves whilst catching up with old friends or getting to know those they were meeting for the first time.
“The evening ended with a slick performance from Trinity alumnus, Freddie Benedict, singing hits from Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, and John Legend – guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor.
“This was a real female-driven event celebrating a decade of our co-educational Sixth Form, with an atmosphere of inclusivity and empowerment. We are already planning the next girls’ reunion!”
