The 2018-2019 Sixth Form lectures once again brought a mix of speakers from all walks of life. The Michaelmas Term started with a lecture by GB Olympian Gail Emms on her illustrious badminton career.
We also welcomed Channel 4 film producer Jamie Berry to talk about his critically acclaimed film Walking the Nile. This gritty talk took clips from the film, some shocking, some life affirming.
Music producer Mike Hurst once again made a return to Oundle to entertain the Sixth Form with his talk on the history of modern music. Mike captivated the audience with his trusty, and rather expensive, acoustic guitar.
Highlights of the Easter Term included Dr David Nabarro on the problems with feeding the world, art dealer and presenter of BBC’s Fake or Fortune, Philip Mould, talking about the discovery of lost art, and scientific hero Professor Robert Winston, on the science behind happiness.
The new lecture series begins again in September.
