What a joy to welcome Trevor* on board at Higham to further our capacity to consider how the world works in the context of our society. Our Sovereign being a Head of the Church, faith being tested for some at many levels, a growth in thinking towards both secular and more universal world – there is a need for us to take opportunities to strengthen our personal capacities to understand why and what we and those around us believe.

Higham remains non-partisan, non-affiliated and independent, but we hope that we can help provide a foundation here for informed and balanced thinking, alongside themes which are often transmitted through the contexts within art, music and history, in particular, as well as other courses aimed at personal growth and fulfillment. Indeed, our very independence enables Higham to achieve an objective view without heavy bias one way or the other.
