Sharing PIE Talks (Putney Ideas Exchange)

Sharing online Putney Ideas Exchange talks, weekly, with our partner schools. Speakers range from academics to leaders in business and entrepreneurs. Talks have an academic focus, as well as opening the eyes of students to different career paths and possibilities.

Students from other schools can either attend 'live' via Microsoft Teams in order to participate in the talks and ask questions, or link to recordings of the talks.

Aims

- The immediate beneficiaries are our students at Putney High School (Y7-13), alongside pupils from our State and Independent School partners

Background
