The History Society meets every other Monday throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms. It welcomes renowned scholars from the historical world. Recent speakers have included Dr David Smith on Charles I, Dr Greg Sullivan from Tate Britain on the importance of art to an understanding of the past and Michael Portillo on how a knowledge of history permeates politics. The Society is organised by boys. They are responsible for identifying and inviting speakers and hosting our guests during their visit.

The John Churchill Society meets on several occasions each term. It provides a forum for boys in the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Forms to discuss History. The Society is addressed by staff and boys. The most recent talk focused on the South Sea Bubble.
