Sixth Form Student Reaches Finals of National History Competition

A talented young historian has reached the finals of a national History competition.

Rebecca Orr, who lives in Ellesmere and is a former pupil of Lakelands, joined the Sixth Form to study the International Baccalaureate. She took part in the National debate, organised by the Historical Association, on the topic why History matters to you.

Louise Paton, Head of History explained, Becky talked about the Brixton Riots of 1981 and was commended for her intelligent and well researched speech and consequently won the regional heat.

Rebecca now goes through to the National Finals which are to be held in Merton College Oxford in March year.
