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”. We look forward to more events in 2015.

Debra Searle Lecture: Professional Adventurer & Solo Atlantic Rower Debra Searle
Monday 2nd November, 7pm

Debra Searle will talk about her life as a professional adventurer, author, BBC presenter and gender equality advocate. Debra first hit the headlines when she set out to row across the Atlantic with her husband.  Unfortunately he had to be rescued so Debra, a novice rower, continued alone and rowed 3000 miles from Tenerife to Barbados. It should have taken them six weeks but, to achieve her goal, Debra ended up spending 3 ½ months at sea alone, encountering 30' waves, sharks, and force 8 squalls in her 23 foot plywood boat.
