Clare Balding visits GHS

On Tuesday 11 December we were excited to welcome Writer, Broadcaster and multi award-winning Sports Presenter Clare Balding. Clare has interviewed some of the most famous names in Sport and has presented nearly every sporting event on the television and radio from the Olympics to the Americas Cup. Alongside this, she has been involved in broadcasting major royal events including Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s Royal Pageant and the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.


Clare visited the school to hold a compelling and engaging forum with the girls, where she answered questions with topics ranging from confidence and body image to resilience and learning to fail. Clare’s wealth of anecdotes from sporting fields and the sheer passion for her profession made her an excellent choice as a speaker for one of our ‘Inspiring Women, Inspiring Girls’ talks. Clare was an inspiration to us all and we were delighted that she was able to visit our school!
