Lectures

The well-established and regularly oversubscribed Public Lecture Series was established with the purpose of bringing notable public figures to the school so that they may present their ideas to both the school community and wider public. Past speakers have included Gita Sereny, Simon Sebag-Montefiore, Andrew Marr, Susan Greenfield, Mary Warnock, Anne Sebba, Lord Rees-Mogg and David Starkey, who called it “one of the best and most enjoyable I've ever done”.
