Our guest speaker on Tuesday was Jonathan Evans, a returning favourite, who spoke insightfully on foreign policy and national security, particularly pertinent in the current climate. The evening concluded with feedback and goalsetting meetings between our mentors and their students, and it is fair to say many of them are aiming high, one of the […]Read More

On February 10th our KAN UAP cohorts set out from Tonbridge for their February meet-up event, kindly hosted at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. After a long journey, the students were rewarded with lunch in the College Hall, where they were joined by their learning mentors. Having been suitably fed the students split into their cohorts for the afternoon’s activities.
The Year 10s began the afternoon by debating the effect of migration on Britain, the culmination of their research task that was set in October. The students engaged brilliantly on a complex issue, which continues to dominate the headlines across the country. After this they were treated to a tour of Cambridge, where they were able to take in the sights and learn some of the universities 800 year old history.
