I am delighted that Professor Robert Winston will be visiting us in December to deliver an exciting lecture to our Senior School and Sixth Form pupils. His talk is entitled ‘What Makes Us Happy?’ .

Professor Winston is well-known to audiences throughout the world for several BBC television series, which include ‘The Human Body’, ‘Secret Life of Twins’ and ‘Superhuman’. He is currently Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College School of Medicine and is world-renowned as a fertility expert.

I know that many of our pupils are looking forward to hearing Lord Winston speak. He is a truly engaging speaker who brings science to life and is one of my personal heroes.

At the end of the lecture there will be an opportunity for our pupils to ask him questions. You can find many clips from his previous television documentaries on YouTube if you would like to find out more about his work before the talk.
