Manchester High School for Girls


Three former pupils will be returning to MHSG to give girls and parents the inside track on how they have forged a successful career in the financial sector.

This year sees Manchester High launch the 'Insight Into...' careers series where over the course of the year we'll be drawing on the experience of our alumnae community to give us the inside track on specific sectors. 

The 'Insight Into...Finance' event will take place on Wednesday 2nd November from 6pm in the Zochonis Lecture Theatre. It is open to girls in Years 10 through to 13.
