The Careers Department provides you with individual advice and a wealth of information. We maintain a unique careers register of parents and NHEHS Old Girls, which along with the resources of the GDST Alumnae Network, can put you in touch with people willing to offer advice on specific careers on a one-to-one basis.
The short film below presented by NHEHS Alumna, Angellica Bell, explains how the GDST Alumnae Network can help girls unleash their potential:
There’s advice on work experience and internships and an unrivalled source of inside knowledge, advice and contacts is provided by the annual NHEHS Careers Convention. This superb event is organised by the Parents’ Guild and mobilises the considerable resource of the Notting Hill parent body, their contacts and experience. Usually over 60 occupations and professions are represented and the evening offers you the opportunity to speak to senior people and share their enthusiasm for the work they do.
You will also have access to the Independent Schools Careers Service (ISCO). The school’s membership of ISCO gives all our sixthformers access to their expertise and services until the age of 23 and they also offer a range of courses and taster days covering areas such as careers in journalism, medicine, business or finance.
We’ll make sure you’re up-to-date with information on careers events in and around London. If you are considering a year off, visits from gap year representatives will help you make your plans and we can point you in the direction of other sources of information on working or studying abroad and voluntary work.
