Could Your School Be One Of Our Partners?

Each year, the Longford Trust works with one secondary school, usually from within the M25 radius, engaging its older pupils in the subject of prison reform (as above, with pupils from Sacred Heart High School meeting Baroness Hale, our 2005 Lecturer). After an initial visit to the school in spring by a Longford Trust patron, the office team and Longford Scholars, the pupils design the promotional materials for that year’s Longford Lecture, attend the event where they help out with ushering, and meet the speaker to discuss issues raised in the lecture.

Vyners School, Ickenham

Our 2023 Schools’ Partner is Vyners School in Ickenham, a high-achieving, mixed 11-18 academy. In the summer term of 2023, two of our award-holders, Lois (pictured left) and Malachi (centre) accompanied director Peter Stanford (right) to Vyners to discuss prison reform with sixth formers and Year 10s. This coming autumn the pupils will design promotion material for the lecture and attend it, along with Deputy Head Nicola Harvey.
