Creating career connections between alumnae and parents

We are committed to helping St Catherine’s alumnae in their career development and every year we support many of them by making connections to other alumnae and parents working across a plethora of professions.

Social Media

St Catherine's Bramley Linked in Page

Do join our ‘private’ group which is open to all members of the Association – that includes current and former parents and staff, friends of St Catherine’s, as well as current senior 6th form pupils.

We’ll be sharing articles and comment on professional working life, leadership and career development.

The more who join us, the more opportunities there are for alumnae and parents to connect, support each other and perhaps help current St Catherine’s girls in planning their future careers.  You can help shape the group too with your views and opinions.
