Sixth Form Lecture Programme
By taking a decisive step to restore a linear A Level course we have removed the pressure of AS Level examinations from Year 12 and therefore created time and space for students to enjoy learning and be inspired to want to learn more above and beyond the demands of their examination courses.
As a result of the curriculum changes, Sixth Form students are joined by local Sixth Formers once a fortnight to listen to and be inspired by an eclectic mix of speakers in the Sixth Form Lecture programme. This is an exciting opportunity to hear from and question some of the foremost thinkers and speakers in industry and business, science, the arts and the charity sector, and beyond.
The girls have been delighted by the diversity of talks: whether relishing the impassioned ‘can-do’ attitude of Pinky Lilani, OBE, as she filled the Jubilee Hall with the flavours of Indian cookery or musing more quietly on the thoughts of Dr Anthony Grayling; listening open-minded to Dame Carol Ann Duffy reading her poetry or quizzing Lord Dyson, Master of the Rolls, on the workings of the Supreme Court, the girls have undoubtedly enjoyed these opportunities.
Parents are most welcome to attend lectures.

RT @STAHSEnglish: Interesting to see how many big names are missing here; depressing to see so few women on the list. Time for a new cadre…

Has there ever been a more important time to make space for silence?
