Sixth Form

Open Forum

Every Friday afternoon all members of the Upper Sixth gather in the Dobson Theatre for the Open Forum presentation. These presentations cover a variety of subjects of interest to all.

The current programme includes a visit by an ex-convict, a recovering alcoholic, and Olympic Sports psychologist, and wildlife television producer, and a hypnotist.  In addition we welcome back OEs to discuss their Gap Years, university experiences, and later careers.

For many years we had the privilege of welcoming Freddie Knoller, a survivor of Auschwitz concentration camp. Now in his 90s, Freddie has become a little frail to deliver his energetic and surprisingly optimistic talk, but we recommend all students to read his autobiography - Living with the Enemy. Whilst Freddie is completely irreplaceable, we have several talks from people with first hand experience of war and conflict around the world which serve as a reminder of our good fortune to live in peace and prosperity.
