Claudia Winkleman Visits QG!

Posted on 9 January 2020 by Miss Emily Acton-Edmiston

The New Year and Spring Term started with a bang this week, with a special visit from TV presenter, journalist and film critic Claudia Winkleman!

Claudia joined Senior School pupils on Wednesday 8 January to do a Q&A as part of their weekly Wider World talks series. Claudia’s bubbling enthusiasm for her work and family in general was infectious and it was refreshing to see the girls’ questions answered with honesty and humour.

After completely a History of Art degree at Cambridge University, which she loved, Claudia went on to work in an art gallery. However, she quickly realised (after four days!) that this was not going to be the right job for her! She modestly reiterated to us that her current career in the TV and media world has all happened by chance but noted that smiling and always offering to help, will get you a long way in life!

Many thanks to Claudia for taking the time out of her busy day (unpacking boxes at her new house!) to come and chat to us!
