Request a School Speaker

COVID-19 update: We have now returned to offering in-person visits by our school speakers, but will review this if circumstances change. Many of our speakers are happy to make in-person visits now. However, we hope you understand that some still may not be. Where we can’t find somebody local
to visit in-person, we will try to find someone who can visit remotely.

Please state whether you are seeking an in-person or a virtual visit in the ‘Further details’ box on the request form.


If you would like to arrange a visit from a humanist school speaker, please complete the form below. 

We have free, trained, and experienced volunteers across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland that can visit schools to talk about humanism.

Using their life experience and knowledge, our School Speakers can add a personal dimension to young people’s study of humanism that goes ‘beyond the textbook’. They offer a range of services and will fit around your needs and requirements.

Find out more about how a school speaker can help you by visiting Understanding Humanism.

Fill in the form below to request a visit from a Humanists UK school speaker.

We aim to respond to requests for humanist school speakers within 10 working days.

If you have a preferred date for the session please include it in the space provided with the start and end times. If you are requesting multiple sessions please list all the preferred dates with the start and end times. If the date/s has not been set, please mention this and whether the request is for multiple sessions. The school speaker will contact you to confirm/arrange the date/s. The more notice you can give us of your preferred date/s, the easier it is for us to find a speaker for your session.
E.g. Why I am a Humanist and what I believe, Humanist view on Wealth, Poverty & Equality etc.
Please enter the total number of students. e.g. a session each for three separate classes would be 30x3 = 120 students. An approximate number is fine. Please enter numbers only.

Expenses: We are a charity and our school speakers are volunteers who are happy to offer their time and expertise for free. We very much hope that schools will be able to cover any travel expenses incurred by our volunteers or make a contribution where expenses are considerable because of the distances involved. We hope you will understand that our speakers may have to turn down a request if a school is unable to cover or contribute to expenses where these are considerable.

Humanists UK has been awarded the OCN London Quality Mark, certifying the high quality of our training.
