Foundation Schools' Essay Competition

Monday 30th November 2015

On Thursday 26 November, schools from the Westminster City and Grey Coat Hospital Foundations joined together for the Foundation Schools’ Essay Competition Awards Supper, held at Emanuel School.

The Foundation Essay Competition is an opportunity for students from the five foundation schools to display their calibre and qualities as a scholar through submitting an independent, self-directed piece of research (in a subject of their choice), culminating in a 2500 word paper. Students are given a selection of essay titles from which to choose and are encouraged to develop a plethora of skills in completing the task. The Essay Competition was a self-study project which required the girls to complete the essay over the summer holidays.

The top ten essays were adjudicated by Dr Nicholas Perkins – Associate Professor of English and Dean: St Hugh’s College, University of Oxford and students who entered the competition were judged on skills including thinking, listening, talking, evaluating and decision making.

Queen Anne’s Lower Sixth students who participated in this year’s competition included:

  • Olivia Dunseath
  • Olivia Dunning
  • Kate Hillas
  • Rosie Griffin
  • Britta Anderson
  • Susie Liddell
  • Rosie Angel-Clarke
  • Zara Amjid

Congratulations to all our Lower Sixth students who submitted excellent essays for the competition.
