As part of our continued Sixth Form Enrichment and learning beyond the classroom, and in line with feedback from the recent feedback questionnaire for our girls, we are delighted to announce the launch of the new Rye Visiting Speakers Programme in September 2020. This programme will give girls the chance to get under the skin of things they may not normally have the opportunity to – for them to explore the ‘what else’.
Every month, Sixth Form girls will hear from a visitor who is an expert in their field – whether this be an area of work, a specific project, a genuine hobby/interest, or a research topic. Girls will have the opportunity to ask questions and, together, explore each topic further. Sessions will be monthly on a Wednesday afternoon at 1pm.
The theme of the talks for the Michaelmas term is ‘Moving Forward’, and speakers will cover topics such as diversity, sustainability, and how to navigate the world into which pupils will find themselves at the end of their school career.
