We will be welcoming Gillian back to Rossall next month to give a Guest Lecture during OR Weekend on the 22nd April. Her topic will be ‘BREXIT and Trump; a return to protectionism and populism’. A number of GCSE and A Level students have also been invited to attend this exciting session to find out more about this very current topic.
