Carlton le Willows Academy

Nothing but the best

Dr David Starkey visits Academy

RENOWNED historian Dr David Starkey travelled to Carlton le Willows to lecture to Sixth Formers today (14 January) after accepting an invitation to visit the school.

Eminent author Dr Starkey agreed to deliver two talks at the Academy after Year 13 history student and Deputy Head Boy Henry Beale got in touch with him.

During the afternoon Year 12 and 13 history students heard Dr Starkey talk about Henry Vlll’s transformation into a tyrant.

This free exclusive session was then  followed by a further talk in the evening when Dr Starkey spoke about Henry Vlll and Brexit – how he believes the infamous king would have dealt with the situation.
