Students Receive Praise in Prestigious Competitions

A number of students have been successful in a range of prestigious competitions from Geography, Media Studies and History. Edgar Ravenscroft and Emily McCormick in Year 11 both received an honourable mention for their entries to the International Living Rainforest Essay Competition run by the Trust for Sustainable Living. This was against stiff competition from a record number of 1094 entries from 73 countries around the world.

Upper Sixth Media Student Alistair Miller was listed in the top five entries in the documentary section for the inaugural Film Awards run by the WJEC Exam Board, despite a large entry of over 600. Alistair's coursework film on young farmers entering the industry received a 'highly commended' and will be featured in a DVD to be released by the Board this year.

Finally, Year 11 Chantelle Ridgway won this year's Modern World History essay with the title 'How far were Soviet actions in Europe between 1945 and 1965 the most important reason for the deteriorating relationship with the USA?' She was unanimously voted the winner by the panel of judges in the competition entitled the 'Young Historian Project' and gained £100 voucher to spend at Waterstones.
