Famous Names and Remarkable Individuals

Each half term ExpertEd:LIVE! will bring some famous names and remarkable individuals into classrooms and give pupils the chance to hear from, and put their questions to, a spectacular line-up from the worlds of business, academia and adventure. Schools joining this programme will get the opportunity to have these speakers connecting LIVE with their pupils.

Our Highlight Speakers

In March we met Britain’s first Astronaut, Helen Sharman, and learnt about how she became as astronaut and what is it like to leave Earth and live on a Space Station.
Tim Ream (Fulham FC) was our exciting guest for our Premier League footballer event at the end of November. Tim helped us explore themes around dealing with setbacks and resilience. It was fantastic to see all the enthusiastic classes who joined us for this event – thank you for your questions to Tim.
