Vote for GDST Alumna of the Year 2017

The GDST Alumnae Network is a vibrant community of over 70,000 former students and staff of the 24 schools and two academies of the GDST.

The Network brings together alumnae across the UK and overseas by connecting alumnae, sharing news, supporting careers, hosting social and professional events and linking alumnae to old and new friends.

Every year there is a vote to choose the Alumna of the Year and this year an alumna of Northampton High School has been shortlisted for the very first time.
