Bespoke Events

    “Today was a huge success!  Our students were captivated by Peter and they went away feeling enthused and motivated towards ethical thought.  The structure of the day worked brilliantly and contributions from students during the debate at the end of the day demonstrated just how engaged students were in the topics Peter addressed throughout the day.”

    Maria Webb, Head of Theology, New Hall School

    Candle has been offering Bespoke Events since 2010. Since then, we have visited hundreds of schools across the UK and further afield in Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australasia. We have worked with many thousands of young people, their teachers, governors, parents & friends.

    Schools love the quality and flexibility of our events, as well as our fixed prices. We don’t charge extra for VAT, travel and accommodation or booking fees and we don’t cap the numbers attending within one school. Every member of our team is a qualified, experienced teacher, so we really understand how schools work and what young people need.

    For some recent examples, we have organised:

    • GCSE Religious Studies events for King Edward VI School, Southampton and Gordon’s School, Woking (Islam) and St Mary’s School, Ascot (Catholic Christianity)
    • A Level Christianity events for the Grammar School at Leeds, Notre Dame College and Haileybury School, Hertfordshire, Philosophy & Ethics Masterclass for Portsmouth Grammar School
    • Made to Measure events for Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Boys, Hertfordshire, Dulwich College, London, and Kelvinside Academy, Glasgow.
    • Gifted and Talented events for at Colfe’s School, City of London School for Girls and Portsmouth Grammar School.
    • Sixth Form events – for Skinner’s School “A Grand Design?” And “Ethics Matters” and for Ewell Castle School and New Hall School “Life and Death” as well as for Shebbear College and New Hall (Sixth Form RS).
    • Enrichment events for Year 10-11 students at Haslingden High School, Queen Mary’s High, Walsall, Alderley Edge School for Girls, King Edward’s School Birmingham and Simon Langton Girls Grammar School.
