Atherton Award

The Atherton Award is an annual prize that aims to recognise and encourage entrepreneurial spirit in young women.

La Sainte Union is one of 30 schools across the United Kingdom and the United States offering the Atherton Award. The Atherton Award gives girls' schools the opportunity to supplement the curriculum with a truly entrepreneurial challenge. Students aged 11-18 get the chance to explore entrepreneurship as applicants to the award. Award recipients win an investment, trophy, certificate, and access to a private community of national winners where they can access mentorship and events to further their business and career.

In addition to encouraging more young women to become entrepreneurs, The Atherton Award supports students to: 

  • Better understand risk 
  • Learn what it takes to build a start-up
  • Develop STEM career skills 
  • Increase one's chances of an Oxbridge Acceptance

La Sainte Union offers the Atherton Award as part of our mission to inspire the next generation of female leaders to dream bigger, take risks, overcome challenges and most importantly, nurture their curiosity.
