Monday 8 March marked International Women’s Day and this year’s theme was #choosetochallenge. GCSE history classes remembered the crucial role Russian women played in helping to topple the Tsar in 1917. History Society are celebrating a full Women’s History Month with a series of speakers, focusing exclusively on various aspects of ‘herstory’. Last week Catherine Ostler, author of The Duchess Countess about Elizabeth Chudleigh, address us on the ‘The Real Life Bridgerton: the marriage market at the court of George II’. In a beautifully illustrated talk peppered with anecdote, Catherine gave insight into the intricacies which governed women’s lives. We celebrated our return to school this week with a delightful talk from Kitty and Ava (VII) on two great medieval ‘queens’ – the Empress Matilda and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Students both in the classroom and remote attended, engendering good debate from UIV to VIII.
St Paul’s Girls’ School named The Sunday Times Independent Secondary School of the Year 2022.
