Thank you to Scott Davies (Phillips '04) for Mondays’s talk to our Sixth Form on gambling addiction and its impact as part of our Inspirational Speakers Programme. A difficult story, but a very important one. We have received very positive feedback from our students and parents on this session - it was honest and powerful.

Our Inspirational Speakers Programme is now in its third academic year and is designed to give our Sixth Form students the opportunity to broaden their horizons, and promote intellectual curiosity beyond their A-Level subjects.  The series is based around the theme of ‘what I wish I had been told at school’ and consists mainly of, but is not limited to, a series of lectures and question and answer sessions from OA’s based around their experiences and expertise.

Our senior students are given the chance to hear from speakers, both in-house and visiting, focusing on interesting and thought-provoking academic and cultural topics, as well as some hard-hitting life lessons.
