English Literature students traveled to Warwick University to attend a 'Love Through the Ages' conference.

Students were able to attend a talk by Janette Winterson OBE which gave them helpful information about their summer exam.

Dr Simon Avery taught students about the differences shown over the decades in the theme of love in literature.

Students also went to a talk by Nick Hutchison, actor, about Shakespeare and other texts, giving his different interpretations.

As well as getting valuable information about their exams, students got to experience a day at a Russel Group university and get a real insight into the theme of love in English literature.
