Talk by Professor Matthew Flinders

The Politics Society was delighted to host Professor Matthew Flinders on Wednesday 19th February. He delivered a seminar at lunchtime to girls interested in reading Politics at University and a lecture after school, which covered the 2017 General Election and the rise of Populism.

We were also very pleased to welcome students from Pate's Grammar School, Dean Close and Cheltenham College. It was also particularly exciting to learn how Professor Flinders came to visit us. He put himself forward as a lot in the ‘Authors for Grenfell’ auction that followed the terrible tragedy at Grenfell Tower.

A CLC parent, who wishes to remain anonymous, bid on Professor Flinders and won, kindly donating the opportunity for CLC to host him.
