There are opportunities for Sixth Form students to join the Historical Society, take part in debates and attend conferences led by historians. Previous speakers include David Starkey, John Guy, Richard Evans and Robert Service. We also run residential trips. A-level students visited New York and Washington D.C and in July 2019 there is a trip planned to St Petersburg and Moscow.
