Our Development Office is headed up by Miss Julie Hogg and supported by Mrs Emma Whittley as Alumnae Officer.
The development team’s aim is to grow and develop the programme of events on offer to alumnae, parents, former staff, friends and supporters. Julie also develops fundraising programmes to support a number of capital projects which will help to build and grow the school’s reach in terms of the range and quality of facilities on offer, as well as building up an endowment fund to ensure the long term future of the school.
