Enrichment Ethics and Immortality

Enrichment Ethics and Immortality

Sixth Form pupils have been taking part in a wider enrichment programme based on the book The Immortal life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.  Departments and form tutors have led wide-ranging discussions on complex issues surrounding science, ethics, economics, class, race and racism against a backdrop of American history and politics.  On Thursday, Mrs Webster and Dr Langdon presented a lunchtime masterclass in the Library on the ethics of medical research. This was both historic and a look forward to some of the challenges facing societies today.  We look forward to the discussions continuing over the next few weeks.
