In the near capacity Oswald Elliott Hall, the audience was treated to a captivating lecture from the engaging and entertaining Tudor historian. The lecture was followed by a question and answer session, with many of the questions coming from the large number of SES pupils attending.

Dr Lipscomb discussed Elizabeth’s reign before the Spanish Armada and topics included the challenges and pressures she faced as a woman, her personal life and the role Old Stamfordian, Sir William Cecil, played in her reign.

Dr Lipscomb teaches at the New College of the Humanities, which is a prestigious and innovative undergraduate college based in London.  It offers a unique, liberal arts-inspired curriculum taught by inspirational academics who are enthusiastic about teaching through one-to-one tutorials, small group tutorials, and interactive lectures.

Principal of Stamford Endowed Schools Stephen Roberts said; “It is a privilege to be able to welcome Dr Lipscomb here and her charismatic talk will no doubt have inspired the History and indeed all other students who were in attendance.”
