Harriet Long

Years attended
I attended Skippers Hill for 8 years.

Which Senior School did you attend after Skippers?
St Leonards Mayfield     

What is your current occupation?

Theatrical Agent 

What have you done since leaving school and what achievements are you most proud of?

After Skippers Hill, I went on to St Leonards Mayfield. I choose Mayfield as I was horse crazy and it had such great opportunities for horse riding and competing for the school. After finishing school, I decided to take a gap year where I went and taught at Camp America and then travelled around California and Southeast Asia. I also did a lot of work experience as a runner on numerous television shows to help me gain a place at Bristol University where I studied Drama.

I'm most proud of being driven from such a young age and always knowing the career path I wanted to follow.

What are you doing now and what do you enjoy most about it?

I work at a Talent Agency in London where I represent actors in Film / TV and Theatre.
I absolutely love finding exciting upcoming actors that I nurture and manage to get them booked on their dream roles. I'm also extremely lucky and get to go and see lots theatre (I saw Hamilton... It was AMAZING)!

In what ways did Skippers prepare you for life?

I made life long friends that I still speak with every day. Skippers provided me with so many amazing opportunities to do different things and find out exactly what it was I enjoyed most.

What is your fondest memory of your time at Skippers?
School Sports Day! I loved and always really looked forward to this event every year as it was such a fun day for everyone.            

How would you sum up your experience at Skippers in one word?

Enjoyable! 

Is there anything else that you would like to share with us?

Skippers Hill is where I first met with my now Fiancé! We got engaged at New Year in Sri Lanka and we are getting married next May. A lot of fellow classmates from both of our years will be attending the wedding!
