PAST HIGHLIGHTS

Professor Alexandre Caldas

It's a fantastic initiative — bringing to the hearts of young people the challenge of the environment.

Kelly Hunter, MBE

Four key words that are repeated in Shakespeare's works more than any others — eyes, mind, reason, and love. They form a poetry of the brain.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY
