Get support: connect with Old Girls for careers advice and mentoring

The information below is for recent leavers and alumnae embarking on their career journey. It is aimed to help you benefit from the experience and expertise of other SHSK alumnae and connect you to them for support and advice.

An exclusive network of support for SHSK alumnae

Our global community of over 6,000 Old Girls continue to connect with one another and the School. Our aim is to strengthen those connections - to recognise the wealth of life experience and expertise of our Old Girls; to share knowledge and ideas to achieve more, faster, and together - and to set the agenda on what the future for women in work can look like.

Our careers support page offers you the chance to connect with other Old Girls for professional guidance, support and mentoring opportunities.
