About this day

For A-level students

Enjoy a cutting-edge day of Sociology, exploring social inequality, crime, education, identity and more…

After an exciting and successful programme last year, we will be running another fantastic enrichment day for enthusiastic A-level Sociology students this autumn.  The programme will address a range of increasingly challenging and powerful questions on how society is organised and the factors which influence our choices and how we experience life.  We are delighted to announce that political writer and columnist Matthew Parris will be speaking. One more speaker and further information on the programme to follow.
