‘Can We Maintain Sustainable High Growth in Cambridge?’ is the question being explored by The Hon Matthew Bullock in the next Perse School Community Lecture.
Mr Bullock, who is Master of St Edmund’s College and Vice-Chairman of Cambridge Ahead, will be sharing his insights at The Perse Upper School on Wednesday 30 January at 7.30pm in the latest instalment of our free Community Lecture series, in partnership with The Cambridge Building Society.
