History Society Annual Lecture

On Friday 4 March the annual History Society Lecture took place at school. Dr. Andrew Heath from Sheffield University presented an American themed lecture, which particularly focused on conspiracy theories and imperial plots in post-independence America.


The lecture was hugely interesting with varied topics raised spanning the assassination of John F. Kennedy's to the exploits of the mafia in Chicago. The audience had many questions and those students present quizzed Dr. Heath at the end of his presentation.

Much thanks to Dr Heath for giving up his time to speak to our history students. Also, all thanks to our Head of History Mr. Mike Clarke for organising this most valuable lecture.
