  • BBC News correspondent Fergus Walsh visited UCGS

    Well-known BBC News correspondent Fergus Walsh visited Upton Court Grammar School on Thursday 30th of January 2014 to address the school’s sixth form on their ‘Future’s Day’.

    The day was designed to begin preparing the school’s A Level students for application to University, giving practical advice about all aspects of University life, including course fees, applying for loans, and choosing the right course. Mr Walsh was the keynote speaker, and wowed the audience with his skilful delivery of topical issues in his familiar style often seen on the BBC news.

    He spoke of his personal experiences at Leeds University where he read English Literature, and how he followed an illustrious career reporting on a range of topics, including science and medicine.

    Upton Court Grammar school Principal Mercedes Hernández Estrada said “Mr Walsh captured students' imagination with his wide knowledge of medical issues and was questioned on the ethical reasoning behind a number of recent research projects. A highly informative and inspirational start to their 'Futures Day'.”
