This year sees the launch of the 'LPGS Mini Lectures' programme.
Each Wednesday lunchtime a different teacher will deliver a 20 minute lecture in the main hall on a subject that interests them.
Students from all years are welcome to attend. As the programme continues we hope that students will deliver their own lectures on topics that matter to them/interest them.
