On Monday 28 November we had the most inspiring speaker for Academic Enrichment. Dr Matt Pritchard spoke to us about Wonder and the importance of being open minded.

Illakkia, Year 8, said: We were all in awe as we watched him perform his magic and the younger years were all so impressed. I loved the talk that he gave us as it opened up my eyes to another perspective I hadn’t thought of before.

Eva, Year 10, added: I was amazed at the illusions Dr Matt Prichard managed to create during lockdown, it was inspiring to see that while we were all going through a national crisis and lockdown Dr Prichard was enhancing his creativity. I enjoyed listening to and learning about the different interpretations of wonder.
