17 Dec 2021

We have had a fantastic response across all three Key Stages to our inaugural History Essay competition. Students took it upon themselves to read and research a wide variety of topics and themes to answer the three questions.

We had discussions from Ancient Rome, to Sun Tzu through to Napoleon and WWI and the field of entries was very strong. Prizes will be awarded in the end of term assemblies, but great credit needs to go to the students who went above and beyond their work in the classroom to submit such excellent essays. If you weren't successful this year, then I would suggest beginning your reading earlier so you are more than prepared for an even stronger competition next year. Best wishes for a peaceful festive season.
