Congratulations to lower sixth students Tom and Esme, who have taken 1st and 3rd prize in the Foundation Essay Competition:
"Is antibiotic resistance the greatest long-term threat to public health?" (Tom Marwood)
"During the period 1932-1980, was the Saudi Arabian Monarchy's link with the Wahhabi form of Islam a help or a hindrance to their rule over the country?" (Esme Glen)
The Foundation Essay Competition, which is now in its seventh year, is run between the five Foundation schools (Emanuel, Grey Coat Hospital, Westminster City, Sutton Valence and Queen Anne's School). Year 11 pupils (2017-18) were asked to submit, at the beginning of the autumn term 2018, an independent, self-directed piece of research (on a subject of their choice), culminating in a 2,500 word paper.
There was a celebration dinner at Emanuel last night (Thursday 29th November) for all participating students and the top six essays were announced by Dr Nicholas Perkins, Associate Professor; Tutorial Fellow at St Hugh's College, University of Oxford.
