International Women's Day

As part of International Women's Day, we were lucky enough to welcome Tori James, an intrepid explorer and motivational speaker, to our college. Tori spoke to our students about how she overcame negative stereotypes of women when completing such gruelling challenges as being part of the first all-female team to race to the North Pole, and the youngest British woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest. She also spoke about the importance of the '3 Ps' when striving for a particular goal – Passion, Preparation, and Perseverance.

We hope that our students take this message with them when setting themselves ambitious goals and remember that anything is achievable with the right frame of mind!
