On Wednesday 6th November, Sixth Form History students were treated to a lecture by Professor William Doyle on the subject of the origins of the French Revolution. In this, his second visit to KEHS, Professor Doyle spoke with great clarity about the complexities inherent within French political and social life under the Ancient Regime, stressing the importance of viewing the events in France as a process, rather than a ‘bloc’, to paraphrase the former French President, and historian, Clemenceau. A range of thoughtful questions were asked by students and this completed a thoroughly engaging experience for all concerned.
On Friday 23 February, the KEHS and KES African and Caribbean Society hosted the first King Edward’s Foundation wide Conference. We had 120 students from across 12 schools from across the KEVI Foundation attend the day.
