As part of their long-running ‘Life Skills’ Programme in
the final week of term, the Fifths were treated to a fascinating, informative talk
on Careers and Career choices and skills by a panel of distinguished ORs, from
a wide range of employment. These included: Sir Charlie Mayfield, Chairman of the
John Lewis Partnership; Harry Parker, ex-Army and Afghanistan veteran, author
and painter; Ben Lambert, internet entrepreneur; and Jamie Campbell, film
and TV producer.
In addition to being given some excellent advice (“Be inquisitive
about people”: Sir Charlie Mayfield) and the chance to ask many questions, the
Fifths were treated to the shocks and surprises of some of Jamie’s films: including
scenes set in Covered Passage during his time at Radley in the 1990s, under
the guidance of the Film Unit’s MPH.
