Alice Flanagan started at St Faith’s in Year 6 in 1995, following brothers Hugh Flanagan (1988-96) and William Flanagan (1988-94).
“Richard Dyson as headmaster had made the revolutionary change to introduce co-education to St Faith’s and I was one of the initial intake of girls (see photo below of Alice’s first day at St Faith’s) – and although we were only 6 girls in my year I enjoyed my new school and all its activities immensely. Rugby and Latin were just two of the memorable, and challenging, new experiences. I was honoured to become the school’s first Head Girl, alongside James Waters as Head Boy.
Leaving St Faiths in 1998, I moved on to The Leys until 2003. Those early years of rugby and Latin were great foundations for developing my hockey and games skills and also my love of languages. And once again I had the honour of being Head Girl.
I took a gap year and was an assistant at a school in Mexico and then travelled in Europe. Then I went to University College London to read Spanish and French. In the third year I studied at Bordeaux University and spent time in Buenos Aires. After university I worked and travelled again, before returning to London and getting started on a career.
I started work in digital marketing in 2009. My current position is at Saatchi & Saatchi where I work as International Digital Account Director.”
