Ms Etheridge has recently been appointed our new Director of Debating and Public Speaking.
'I am hugely excited about the re-development plans for the Waterlow Hall. Our girls will benefit from a wide range of public speaking opportunities in this state-of-the-art facility, from small-scale talks and presentations to competitions and debates in collaboration with other schools. The flexible seating, fantastic acoustics and impressive appearance of the new hall will make it the ideal venue to host South Hampstead’s exciting programme of events. At SHHS, we aim to cultivate confidence, eloquence and intellectual dexterity in our students; the Waterlow Hall project is going to give us the platform to take this to the next level. The new space will open up exciting possibilities for the future of public speaking at South Hampstead – I can’t wait to make the most of it!'
