the weekly newsletter from EHS

Meet 3 of our old girls currently working in the fight against COVID19. These girls have kindly put together a careers profile for our new instagram account @EHScareers. Please follow us for ideas, inspiration and to see ‘Where are they now’?
“I left EHS in 2006 and I went on to study pharmacy in Leicester where I got my masters in pharmacy degree.
A year later I became a pharmacy manager for 7 years for a big chain where I learnt many skills. I felt like I wanted a change and returned to university in 2019 while juggling a young family and studying. I qualified as a Clinical pharmacist in August 2019.
I am now heavily involved in providing COVID vaccines”
“I left EHS in Sixth Form in 2013, moving on to study a degree in Adult Nursing at Coventry University, graduating in 2016.
After finishing university, I went on to work at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire in the Cardiology department and more recently have just moved into community nursing in Warwick. The job requires me to be open minded, nonjudgmental and empathetic all within the same time frame.
From the timid, shy school girl when I started at EHS to now looking after those in need, and nursing through a pandemic “

“I left EHS in 2004 and
went to UCL to study English.
After this, I completed a law conversion and trained as a solicitor with Clifford Chance.
Law was not the right course for me so I changed and studied medicine at King’s College London.
I am currently a doctor in anesthetics and intensive care, working in the fight against Covid-19
My message to EHS students would be that it is never too late to change your mind about your career and life takes you in unexpected directions. Enjoy the journey.”
