Seniors Making a Difference

Wycombe Abbey Seniors at the Making a Difference panel talk

At the end of last term, we invited pupils, parents, Seniors and staff to attend the 125 Seniors “Making a Difference” panel talk as part of our 125 anniversary celebrations. For this special talk, we were delighted to hear from Wycombe Abbey alumnae about how they overcame challenges and made a difference throughout their professional and personal lives.

The panel consisted of Clarissa Ward, Chief International Correspondent for CNN; Sophie Daud, CEO of Future Leaders Network; Charlotte Willis, board member at Medic Alert; and Alice Loxton, presenter and content creator at History Hit.

The Seniors spoke about their achievements and challenges following their time at Wycombe Abbey and reminisced about their fondest memories, friendships and shared experiences from their time at School. The audience also had the chance to ask questions which the panel were eager to answer. Questions centred around how they entered their field, their experiences in their various workplaces as well as their achievements.

As much as we would have liked to have all four at School, Alice and Charlotte joined us in person in the Lancaster Arts Centre, whilst Sophie and Clarissa joined us via Zoom – a truly hybrid event.

A huge thank you to the Seniors who volunteered their time to be on the panel; pupils were inspired by what they heard.
