A Centenary Poem
The Inspiring Future Female Leaders conference was among Benenden’s most ambitious events ever – bringing together students from more than 60 students across the UK with hundreds more joining remotely worldwide.
With a line-up of truly exceptional female trailblazers, the historic conference featured a stirring closing speech by Benenden Senior and patron of the Benenden Society
HRH The Princess Royal.
Davina McCall opened Benenden’s first Women and Wellness conference, at which students and visitors from local partner schools enjoyed a series of talks on women’s health and wellbeing, touching on finance, digital safety and the menopause.
Benenden celebrated its close connections to the Hong Kong region with a range of events, including a communal walk around the Peak, a special service at St John’s Cathedral, and a Centenary celebration event at the Asia Society.
Students and staff across Benenden looked back to the year of the School’s foundation for clothing, food and lesson inspiration. The School turned back to where it all began, when the three Founders opened their new establishment in 1923.
