JULIE ARLISS ON THE ORIGINS
OF THE UNIVERSE
Since 2013, the Ian Ramsey Centre has collaborated with Academy Conferences on events for students, teachers, and headteachers.
Academy Conferences Ltd is a unique grass-roots initiative set up by a teacher,
Julie Arliss of King’s School, Taunton, in 2009 to help students, teachers, and headteachers think about the larger purposes of education and engage with the big questions of life.
The focus is on aspects of the curricula and activities of UK, NZ and Australian schools that engage with philosophical and theological ideas.
