Year 12 Visit to IBM

On Friday 20 November, Year 12 visited the IBM site in Winchester to find out more about the IBM mentoring scheme. On arrival, we were greeted with refreshments, before going on a tour of current IBM technologies. We then had the opportunity to meet with possible mentors over lunch, all Senior Executives at IBM, and to find out more about the IBM programme. The scheme is personalised and varied, according to the individual interests and needs of students, but has previously included time management, presentation and interview skills and help with organisation and CV writing.

In the afternoon we had an in-depth tour of the IBM museum, where we were able to see how machines such as typewriters, computers and tablets have evolved over time. We also spent time in the emerging technologies department, where we were able to meet Watson, a cognitive technology system that processes information more like a human than a computer!

The day was truly inspirational, as well as being a lot of fun.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
