Holly Whymark selected for prestigious leadership programme

Posted on 4 October 2019

Congratulations to STAHS Head of Drama, Holly Whymark, who has beaten some tough competition to be selected for the Royal Opera House Leaders for Impact programme.

Mrs Whymark is one of just 15 senior school leaders chosen across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex and Kent to take part in the programme, which aims to celebrate culture and promote the arts in schools. Between July 2019 and June 2020, she will pursue a tailored programme of knowledge and practice-based learning. The programme includes group workshops and training, inspiration sessions and a group leadership challenge, as well as mentoring and coaching with carefully selected professionals, including national leaders from the cultural sector.

It is a great opportunity for Mrs Whymark and the High School, and we wish her the very best of luck.
