L4 Careers Project at Queen Anne's

Thursday 20th March 2014

A comprehensive and progressive Careers Education and Guidance programme is provided for Queen Anne’s girls to acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for them to manage their career path.  For the younger girls, our approach is more informal, exciting and fun. The emphasis is on a broad spectrum of occupations and developing decision-making skills.

This starts with the Lower Four year group where pupils have the opportunity to be challenged and have fun with our Careers Project.  The girls are asked to become ‘Careers Detectives’ and find out all they can about a career they may want to do in the future.  The brief was to present their work as imaginatively and attractively as possible.

This year the quality was exceptional. After a long deliberation, the following winners were chosen, however, all the girls should be commended for their efforts.

Overall winners:

  • Emmeline Bolton for her originality, inventiveness and designing an exceptionally IT literate booklet on Engineering.
  • Millie Bowater for her clever booklet/poster depicting Architecture, made from recycled materials.

Runners Up:

  • Hannah Mo – Zoologist
  • Eleanor Doughty Davis – Nursery Assistant
  • Hannah Stronach – Barrister
  • Zoe Campbell – Wedding Dress Designer
  • Grace Smith – Photography
  • Hannah Townend – Architecture
  • Lyra Cherry – Art Director
  • Georgie Ralston – Vet
