The students from schools including Norwich High School for Girls (NHSG), City of Norwich School and Sheringham High gathered at Open in Norwich earlier this month for the event.

Now in its third year, Inspiring Females - founded at NHSG - has reached more than 1,000 girls.

The three days saw presentations, Q&A panels and workshops, as well as talks from Norfolk YouTube vlogger and make-up artist Sam Chapman.

One event, Be Social, saw teams coached by entrepreneurs to develop and pitch a social enterprise idea, while another day focused on mental health and wellbeing.

Kirsty Von Malaisé, NHSG headmistress, said the event was a “powerful experience, an uplifting one, which I know has had a big impact on those who were there”.
