Talks and Workshops

I am available for Conferences to speak and do workshops, and, where possible, school visits:

School visits:

I’m afraid that, as I’m a full-time teacher myself, I’m unable to come and speak at schools during term time, unless we happen to have different half term or other holiday dates when I might be off work when you’re on. You can check this at my school’s website: https://www.churcherscollege.com/our-school/term-dates 

If you are still interested and can find a mutually suitable date, the cost for me to come and speak to a class or larger group for a couple of hours would be £150 + travel expenses, with a possible surcharge of £100 for travel times over 3 hours.

Conferences and other speaking engagements:

I will hopefully be at the next Classical Association Conference in London next July!

Please use the email address below to contact me regarding any other speaking engagements you might like me to attend.
