City Girls in the Arts

Year 9's 'City Girls in the Arts' morning, meanwhile, was all about creative careers. Tim Summers (Professor at Royal Holloway, University of London) and Amy Hitchcock (Head of Arts and Entertainment at Sky News) gave Year 9 an insight into their respective careers, before the students were tasked with creating their own 30-second videos portraying 'Joy in my Space'. They were encouraged to film both in school and outside in the sun, and create their own music to accompany the films.  

Year 9 student Jiyaa came away from the day reflecting that "interviewing and presenting news articles in [Amy Hitchcock's] field is challenging at times but definitely a rewarding experience" and thinking of "the plethora of career options that were linked to the field of Music, and also how a creative subject is always valued in any occupation!"
