Virtual ‘Perspectives’ Lecture: ‘Bossy Women’
Reflections on Ambition and Leadership from a Female Perspective
Monday 8 February 2021, 7.00pm
At this inaugural ‘Perspectives’ Lecture, Old Girl Sally-Anne Huang, High Master at St Paul’s School, will draw upon her own experiences of challenging stereotypes in leadership and management and how those may or may not fit with wider views on the topic of gender equality. The event will be held on Zoom.
This lecture is free to attend and open to the wider community. It is recommended for pupils in Year 10 and up. Pupils from local schools have been invited to attend virtually alongside current and former Bolton School pupils, parents and staff.
Sally-Anne Huang (née Blakemore, Class of 1990) is the first ever female High Master of St Paul’s School in its 510-year history, and was previously Headmistress of James Allen’s Girls’ School, and Kent College, Pembury. In this post, she was also chair of the Methodist Independent Schools heads’ group for two years. Her earlier appointments have included Housemistress at Sevenoaks School, where she taught the International Baccalaureate, and Deputy Head at Roedean. Her professional interests include the importance of cultural diversity within schools and the power of performing arts in pupil experience.
After leaving the Girls’ Division, Sally-Anne read Classics and English at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. She has an MSc in Educational Leadership and Management and, more recently, completed a Masters degree in Children’s Literature: a personal passion of hers. Sally-Anne was appointed as Governor of Bolton School in 2018, and is the 2021 Chair of HMC, the Headmaster’s Conference. Married to Alexis, Sally-Anne has two adult sons and two dogs. Her interests include young adult fiction, playing the tenor saxophone and watching rugby.
‘Perspectives’ is a new lecture series hosted by the Girls’ Division, currently on Zoom, with events scheduled to take place once every half term.
