Academic Ambition Series Spring 2021

Our Academic Ambition seminars, held after school at 3.45pm, are designed to inform, provoke, stretch and challenge our intellectually advanced students. Structured similarly to University seminars, these sessions are intellectually demanding, but also fascinating and exciting, and we hope that students leave the sessions inspired to read and think more deeply.

All students and their families are welcome to attend these seminars, which can be accessed via Firefly.
