Thank you to all who have expressed an interest in attending our event tomorrow.. We are writing to inform you that regrettably we will be postponing this week's event as due to unforeseen circumstances a number of our students would not be able to deliver their talks. We had been preparing for this evening for a long time so we will reschedule for a later date.

Ted Talks are a fantastic vehicle for young people to embrace ideas and creativity and for our students to develop into independent thinkers, effective at communicating their views to the world. Once we have reorganised the event we will contact you. We hope to see you then.

Once again please accept our apologies; we look forward to seeing you soon.
