LGBT History Month
Today is the start of LGBT History month which is a month-long annual remembrance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. This year’s theme is celebrating the commitment and achievements of LGBT champions.
To recognise these champions each day there will be an LGBT person and their achievements displayed on the wall of the concourse. You can get involved by tweeting some of your favourite LGBT champions you see through the month followed by #LGBTCatalyst and by joining our Equalities group on a Wednesday in the SfL Dept.

Sutton Trust Summer School 30 June to 5 July 2019.
Only 1 month left to make an application!
The Sutton Trust Summer School at the University of St Andrews is held each year in order to give pupils in S5 the chance to experience a week in the life of a university student. It has been proved that this experience, aimed at pupils who fulfil most of the criteria set out in the information material, is of great benefit when applying to competitive universities.
The residential week includes study within academic areas of interest, social activities and advice on UCAS related topics. The week is free of charge and pupils are only required to bring spending money for their personal use.
Applications are now open and I would encourage your pupils to apply early. Further information can be found online at
Applications close on 28 February 2019.
If you have any questions about the Sutton Trust Summer School or any of our other Outreach programmes then please do not hesitate to contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01334 462346.
