Visiting Speaker: Ronnie Archer-Morgan




The last in our series of Ridley Lectures this year was delivered by Ronnie Archer-Morgan of Antiques Roadshow fame.  Ronnie spoke about his extraordinary life, from a childhood in foster-care to careers in hairdressing, DJing and antiques.  He shared insights into some of his own personal treasures and delivered some wise lessons about alchemising adversity into positive outcomes.  Ronnie was interviewed by GR (Year 13) student Freja who plans to study broadcast journalism next year.  The audience of Deputy Grecians (Year 12 students) and staff enjoyed engaging with this charismatic and surprising speaker.
