Inspirational Speaker Programme
The Inspirational Speaker Programme is one of Sherborne's several academic enrichment programmes, helping prepare boys to engage confidently with the changing wider world.
The Programme has brought key speakers from current affairs, culture and business to Sherborne to speak either to the whole School or to a specific group of boys for their subject, interest or scholarship group.
Primarily, this Programme has been built around subject societies and clubs but has also allowed a School Lecture to take place regularly, attended by many in the School.
Speakers have included David Aaronovitch, Anthony Beevor, Pauline Neville-Jones and Dennis Silk. Speakers in 2015-16 included Falkland's veteran Simon Weston, Sir James Perowne on Shackleton on the anniversary of that fateful expedition and, speaking powerfully about Muslim extremism, Dr Hasan of the Quilliam Foundation.
