Julie Hogg is a Cambridge Graduate and holds a B.Ed (Hons) from Homerton College in History & Education and an M.Phil in History of Girls’ Education from King’s College, Cambridge. She took over the post of Head of Development & Fundraising at St Mary’s School, Cambridge in October 2015 and is currently spearheading the school’s first major fundraising campaign. Having previously been a teacher and Senior Housemistress at both More House School for Boys with SEN in Frensham and at Queen Margaret’s School, York, she made the switch to fundraising in 2011, starting her development career as Annual Fund Officer at Newnham College, Cambridge. Following that, she was the Alumni & Events Officer at Cambridge University Boat Club and Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club, coordinating the Ely Boathouse Fundraising Project, where she worked with a team of alumni volunteers to raise over £4.5m for a new home for Cambridge University rowing. She is a passionate advocate of women’s education, special needs education and equality of opportunity; education can change the world and it starts with women who are, predominantly, children’s first educators. She has also represented Scotland and England in rowing and will be undertaking the Coast-to-Coast Cycle Challenge in August 2016.
