Visiting Speakers

My daughter loves the school. She has been really inspired since she started.

The Cultural Programme includes a wide variety of informative, educational and entertaining events arranged by the School for the benefit of the whole Benenden community.

Our Sixth Form lecture programme welcomes a wide variety of visiting speakers to the School. Experts in their chosen field, often high profile public figures, the programme is extensive and brings students into contact with inspiring and fascinating people.

Most speakers inspire, some amaze, and all provide students with a wonderful opportunity not only to hear people who are leaders in their field talk on their area of expertise, but also have the chance to meet them, discuss with them and ask intelligent questions.

Lectures take place in the Theatre or in the Science Lecture Theatre. Seminar Suppers complement the lecture programme, offering smaller groups the opportunity to meet the speaker over supper. Who knows what inspiring words may cause a change in a student's future studies. 

Recent speakers have included Matthew Parris, Lord Robert Winston and Professor AC Grayling.
