History and Empire Lecture




On 9 May, we welcomed British journalist and bestselling author Sathnam Sanghera, who spoke to senior students on the subject of ‘History and Empire’. The talk was in a different format to usual, with our Assistant Head (Admissions), Dr Wines, interviewing our visiting speaker.

Sathnam Sanghera is the author of the bestselling Empireland: How Modern Britain is Shaped by its Imperial Past; The Boy With The Topknot : A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies; and Empireworld: How British Imperialism Has Shaped the Globe.

It was a truly fascinating talk, especially for those with an interest in history and the legacies of colonialism, and our students, as always, made very good use of the Q&A session at the end.
