Politics and French Sixth Form pupils were privileged to welcome our first speaker of the year, Baroness Doreen Lawrence, well known for her campaigning against racism following the horrific murder of her son Stephen in 1993. 

The Baroness spoke of her reactions to his death, of her feelings as new evidence comes to light, and in particular the challenges faced by the black communities in the UK that continue, which she hopes can be improved through ongoing education. As a high profile black woman, she admitted that she receives regular death threats, and is never entirely free of fear for speaking out.

This was an inspirational and moving experience for our pupils, and we are hugely grateful to Baroness Lawrence for giving us time in such an honest talk.
