Cheshire Life: March 2019

A ris­ing star at the BBC popped into Alder­ley Edge School for Girls. Young pupils wel­comed for­mer stu­dent Michelle Ack­er­ley back to speak to them as part of their monthly ‘Lunch and Learn’ events. Michelle spoke to Se­nior School pupils and girls from Years 5 and 6 about her time at Mount Carmel and AESG, and about her ca­reer since leav­ing.

Michelle rem­i­nisced about the won­der­ful times she had en­joyed and was thrilled to be re­united with some of her old teach­ers still at AESG. Michelle gave the girls some ad­vice; to be re­silient, to per­se­vere, to be­lieve in them­selves and to make the most of ev­ery day.

The girls were fas­ci­nated lis­ten­ing to her sto­ries, from her in­ter­views to her first job in tele­vi­sion at Blue Pe­ter. She spoke about over­com­ing ob­sta­cles and turn­ing knock backs into sources of mo­ti­va­tion.

‘It was so fan­tas­tic to visit my old school and to meet so many in­cred­i­ble stu­dents,’ Michelle en­thused.

‘They re­ally are a tes­ta­ment to the school. It’s lovely to see AESG go­ing from strength to strength.’

Michelle reg­u­larly hosts The One Show along­side Matt Baker, which has seen her in­ter­view­ing some big names in­clud­ing Samuel L Jack­son, Tom Hid­dle­ston, Danny Boyle and Naomie Har­ris. Michelle also presents the new se­ries of UKTV’S Fan­tasy Homes by the Sea.
