Last week, St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls was delighted to hold a successful Alumni Spring Lunch event, to bring generations of St Martins’ girls together to catch up, reminisce and celebrate their educations.
The event saw girls who left our school from as long ago as 1955 connect with alumni from as recent as 2018. Ex-students were invited along with their friends and family to return to the school for a picnic-style event, which allowed them to network, reconnect with old friends and teachers, and relive their time at our school. Our past pupils were also offered a tour around the school, and were invited to sing our School Song together once more.
“It was a pleasure to welcome back girls from several generations at St Martin in-the-Fields. We are proud to be a girls’ school and experts in female education, and it was clear to see the St Martin’s sisterhood is still alive in our past students, even years after they left the school,” said Josephine Okokon, our Headteacher at St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls. “The girls were given a tour of the school, and it was delightful to hear them retelling old stories of their time here, the place where they developed the skills and confidence they needed to be the successful, powerful women they are today.”
When asked about their time at St Martin’s, some members of our alumni said:
"Being in a girls’ school meant I could do anything. I was not afraid to study different subjects."
"Once a St Martin's Girl, always a St Martin's Girl."
This was a truly wonderful event and a real celebration of girls’ education and achievements – thank you to all who attended.
