Ten local and successful businesswomen delivered a range of seminars to girls in Year 9 at the Broadstone Road school on Thursday 18th October.

Speakers included lawyers, social workers, art and design retailers and council office employees, as well as women running competitive businesses in the beauty sector.

GCSE students had interactive sessions with each of the presenters and were able to ask a range of questions in small groups.

Pupil Akilah Watson described it as “an amazing morning”.

Fellow student Shauna Lofts added: “I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

“It was fun and informative and helped me decide what I am going to do in the future.”

The day was the result of collaboration between Sarah Moss of Havering Council and Val Masson, Hornchurch High School’s headteacher.

It is believed to be the first time such an event has been held in the Havering to showcase successful women in business, and has been deemed such a success that plans are currently being made to hold another event after Christmas.
