St John's Connect
St John's Connect - Business Networking
As part of our ongoing commitment to our pupils, parents and alumni, we are developing a Business Hub, St John's Connect, in which our alumni, parents, staff and Sixth Form pupils, can connect to make the most of the wealth of knowledge, experience and opportunities that exist in the St John’s community.
With the support of the St John’s community we will be hosting Business Breakfasts, Careers talks, mentoring and work experience amongst many other connections.
A programme of business and professional networking events have been planned, following on from the success of our inaugural Business Breakfast in February 2020.
Future events in the St John’s Connect series include:
