On Thursday 15 October, Agora Society were delighted to welcome philosopher Professor Peter Singer to a virtual lecture and Q&A session on ‘Living an Ethical Life’. Using the philosophy of utilitarianism, he discussed a wide range of issues: how to pick an ethical career; non-human animal rights and becoming a vegan; the problem of global poverty and ethics of the lockdown.

Fifths enjoyed a lunchtime Zoom talk with Mr Watson’s former pupil and entrepreneur, Emeka Frederic, who answered a host of questions about his unique Nigerian tapas restaurant, Chukus.

As part of our online Science Careers Event, KES and KEHS pupils heard from a panel of Old Edwardians about their careers in the industry and studying science-based subjects at university. OEs included Paul Andrews (1975), Dr Christopher Hindley (2003) and Dr William Clarke (2008).

Last week, 30 Sixth Form pupils took part in a virtual lecture and Q&A session with economist, Tim Harford. Tim, famous for his Financial Times column and Radio 4 series, gave a fascinating talk on the crucial role statistics play in helping us understand the world around us, and shared insights from his latest book, How to Make the World Add Up.
