Raising Standards Together

Hay Levels - Series 3

Videos for A-level students offering bitesized answers to the biggest questions from inspiring Hay Festival speakers.

World-leading writers and thinkers have joined together to launch the third series of Hay Levels: an inspiring, free series of educational videos from Hay Festival in which experts from a range of different areas offer inspiration for A-level students.

Matched to current A-level subject curricula, Hay Levels are video masterclasses given by  thinkers and writers. From black holes to the Great War to the big thaw, from Frankenstein to immunity to globalisation, and from sex to cosmology to crime; Hay Levels offer bite-size inspiration for curious students.

Videos will be released fortnightly throughout the school year on the Hay Levels YouTube channel and shared across social media (#HayLevels), supplementing the growing bank of content already available online.

Hay Levels is a joint collaboration between Hay Festival and Hereford Sixth Form College, sponsored by the Tata group, giving students open access to some of the most renowned experts in their fields.

Now in its third year, the Hay Levels project was inspired after mathematician Marcus du Sautoy gave an impromptu masterclass to a group of A-level students on his way to speak at Hay Festival. Since then, speakers appearing at Hay Festival events in Wales and around the world have been invited to contribute to the growing bank of free resources online.

Hay Levels is part of the wider Hay Festival education work, which includes free Schools Days programming, Hay Academy, and Hay Compass.
