An extracurricular initiative for the academic year 2011-12 is the Tuesday Afternoon Lecture and Seminar series.
The purpose of the programme is to encourage students from all key stages to listen to and engage in discussion and debate on a wide range of topical and academic issues and, occasionally, to participate in cultural activities such as poetry readings, play readings and master classes.
Highlights from the Autumn Term included the discussion led by Dr. Qamar Bhatti on multi–faith liaison, an analysis by Dr. N. Harding of the future of the NHS , Higher Project presentations by our own Year 9 students and a Key Stage Three performance of The Tempest from the Shakespeare in Schools competition.
As you can see, we are looking forward to a varied and stimulating Spring schedule and have already enjoyed a superbly lucid account of the history of the Soviet Union from Dr. E. Campbell, who gave a uniquely personal perspective on the reasons for the failure of communism.
