Our sixth form Sociology students were given the amazing opportunity to attend a question and answer session with visitor Peter Wanless, the Chief Executive of the NSPCC, as part of the Speakers4Schools initiative.
The talk discussed a wide variety of issues regarding child safety and the role of the NSPCC and its influence within the charity sector. It was inspiring to hear about the history of the charity and how it has transformed itself to continue to promote children’s voices within a more globalised and technology-driven society. Moreover, our students were informed about how it works with different institutions such as the media and the government to reach its goal of “ending child cruelty”.
All our students were inspired by the visit and they will be able to apply what they have heard to a range of topics within their studies as well as considering their role in making a difference.
