Year 12 Trip to Harrow School
On 16th October, a group of Year 12 students attended a talk by Mrs Cherie Blair CBE QC at Harrow School. It was very enlightening and we gained lots of useful knowledge from Mrs Blair. Not only did her speech detail the importance of education, but she also discussed issues of gender inequality within it. She shared some personal anecdotes of her experiences within education and how they were seminal in reaching the position she holds today. It was very inspiring to hear how she overcame, and continues to overcome, gender inequality within her career. After the speech, the hundreds of students present had the chance to ask Mrs Blair any further questions they had about education. Overall, the trip was very useful and I will doubtless be using the advice she provided throughout the rest of my educational career.
