Organised by our Sixth Form Events Co-Ordinator, Fran Parker, our weekly Horizon Lectures take place during the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. The purpose of these talks is to further inspire, motivate and educate our pupils outside of the academic curriculum. The programme’s content is extremely varied; in previous years we have explored war through the lens of a camera, discovered the intricacies of forensic dentistry and considered the computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Each term, a host of speakers visit King's to present and discuss pertenant topics. The Michaelmas Term saw Headmaster Richard Biggs start the lecture series with a talk on the rise and fall of apartheid, then pupils welcomed Senior Lecturer of Middle East Politics Ella Gao, tech guru Dr Simon Noyce, expert in psychology Professor Coral Dando and BAFTA award winner Mr Angus Fletcher.
