News Room

Thinking Outside the Box

Girls in the Lower Sixth are giving a series of talks this term on a variety of subjects. The voluntary programme “Thinking Outside the Box” enables Sixth Formers to increase their confidence in public speaking, as well as giving preparation for University interviews. The programme is also open to Year 10 and 11 girls who are welcome to come along and listen to the talks, ask questions and broaden their horizons.


Emma Tegg opened this term’s programme with a discussion about whether it was ethical to keep killer whales at Sea World. Previous topics have ranged from Alzheimer’s disease to the Cambridge Spies and this term’s programme promises to be as rich and varied.

Talks take place on Monday lunchtimes in the Conference Room.
