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 nine weeks long and 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.

Courses for the Autumn Term 2020/2021:

Course Name




‘The Great Wen’ – A History of London through its architecture.

 Jonny White will teach a ten-lesson course on the ‘built history’ of the capital from Roman ‘Londinium’ to the present day.   The lessons will attempt to make sense of the physical reality we live with today, through the story of the capital’s enduring ability to reinvent itself after Roman abandonment, the Great Fire of 1666, the growth of its suburbia, and the Blitz. 

It will include a Saturday walking tour or two, lockdown permitting.

 Of course  we do not yet know whether this course will be online, in the real world, or a hybrid, which affects the number of people who can attend .

 So, we will set a date and time for people to apply, take the first 28 who respond, just in case we can have real world classes and then the rest will be able to join if we are on ZOOM .

 If the walks (and pub lunches of course) are possible, they will have to be done in smaller groups.

“Thanks to Luke, I am having my moments of ‘epiphany’ at the Wednesday evening classes. I find his classes so stimulating and enriching."

"I join my colleagues in sharing the joy about Luke's class on Emily Dickinson. We’ll have to lobby to have more classes with Luke!"

Luke Maxted
