 GCSE Presentation Evening Sarah Johnson, Old Girl of Stamford High School, returned to school for the GCSE Presentation Evening, to speak to the students about her final years at SHS and the path that she chose to take afterwards.

The SHS Class of 2014 gained their official exam certificates at a formal presentation evening, out of the 93 girls who took their GCSEs in the summer, 61% passed with A*/A grades. In an address to the girls Sarah Johnson, an Old Girl and an international recruitment agent, spoke about staying focused for their final two years of school.

Sarah is the founder of Sarah Recruits Limited, and so has a great insight into many different divisions of work and business, she has years of experience working with a range of clients and entrepreneurs. In her speech, directed at the students who are now starting to study for their A-levels, she told the girls to truly focus on the next couple of years, and stressed how important these would be in the next steps following school. She then spoke about life after school, to start considering top universities for further study, or more vocational paths, and she stressed the importance of not missing chances in the present, that they might regret later.
