Evening Courses

Developed and run by former parents for former parents eight years ago, places on these evening courses are now also available to alumni, current parents and students in Upper Sixth. 

Courses are £180 to join (all profits go to our Bursaries Appeal).  If you would like to register for an online evening course, please contact Gay Search, parent of  alumni Dan (2004) and Nathan (2008). Courses fill up quickly and places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Starting on 19 July:

Robert Orme : Just One Painting 

Robert will teach seven short sessions, focusing primarily on just one painting by a particular artist . He will  start with neglected British Modernists:

James Dickson Innes

Gwen John

Duncan Grant

Sidney Hunt

Albert Wainwright

Edward Wolfe 

Glyn Philpott

Few people will be familiar with these names,  but as those of you who have been on Art History trips with Robert will know, his knowledge of,  and passion for, particular paintings is totally engaging.

The sessions will be no more than 25 minutes, including questions, and we plan to run them on ZOOM at 6pm on Monday evenings, beginning on Monday 19th July and finishing on 30th August . There will be a charge of £10 a session (£60 for all 7) which will be divided between Robert and the  Latymer Upper School bursary in his name.

If you d like to sign up please contact Gay Search.
