How A Day Works:

Before I arrive at your school, we’ll talk together about the content that will be most relevant and compelling for your students.

My presentations are highly interactive, involving media, discussions, debates, quizzes, prizes and book giveaways.  And I leave you and your students with top quality resources.

I take an objective approach to the many controversial themes associated with religion, philosophy and ethics so that students feel absolutely free to discuss, debate and explore their own convictions and ideas. I also emphasize critical thinking skills and weave in principles of how to succeed at University study – in ways that apply to all degree interests.

I speak to entire sixth forms, entire year groups or AS/A level classes pursuing a specific specification. I can also speak to successive classes so as to lessen any disruption to your normal schedule.

Cost:

My fee for a full day at your school is £450.

This includes:

  • Consultations before I come
  • Sessions especially designed for your group
  • Handouts (depending on the size of your group, I may ask you to assist in preparing copies)
  • Answering follow-up questions you may have after my visit

I can come to you anywhere in the United Kingdom; there will be modest travel expenses, depending on your location.
