UK National Security Adviser Sir Stephen Lovegrove KCB (WS 1978-1985) delivered an engaging Encounters presentation to a large audience in Warwick School’s Science Lecture Theatre on 8 October.
Sir Stephen contrasted the liberal hopes of the post-Cold War world with the more realist choices facing western democracies today. He then faced an hour of probing questions from Sixth Formers from Warwick, King’s High School and Myton School ranging from the purpose of AUKUS to what he enjoyed most about his job. As a result of Covid restrictions the meeting was also live-streamed. Following a brief tour of the school, the evening concluded with a convivial meal for Sir Stephen, teachers and Sixth Formers in the Portcullis Room.
We thank Sir Stephen for making his return to the school such a brilliant success and for inspiring the pupils with the possibilities of a career in public service.
