The St Paul's Programme

A remarkable set of opportunities run alongside core study. A thought-provoking conference led by peers; optional courses opening extraordinary windows onto academic and cultural life; entrepreneurship in partnership with start-ups and charities; and an independent project following your passion wherever it leads. It’s all about discovery, collaboration, imagination and creativity.

Friday Lectures

A weekly Senior School highlight, the Friday Lecture sees distinguished speakers from all walks of life talk about their passions, experience and expertise. The lectures spark debates that continue over lunch with the speaker and then well beyond the lecture hall. Every week offers a fresh insight into remarkable lives.

There is much more to the Senior School than where you go next, but we’re proud of the universities attended by Paulinas. It’s not about Oxbridge or Ivy League, though it’s great that so many who set that goal achieve it. It’s about finding the course that excites you.
