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.

The Longford Trust’s partner school in 2017 is Ruislip High in north west London. On May 12, our 2015 Longford Lecturer, Michael Palin, spoke at a school assembly about prison reform, accompanied by current Longford Scholars. He then spent the morning meeting staff and pupils.
