Congratulations to Rhiannon in Year 13 who has been awarded a commendation for her essay on Classical Reception as part of the Mary Renault Prize.
The Mary Renault Prize, run by St Hugh's College Oxford is a Classical Reception essay competition for Sixth Form Pupils. The prizes awarded are in honour of Mary Renault, best known for her novels set in Ancient Greece. Essays are written on any topic related to the reception of classical antiquity — including Greek and Roman literature, history, political thought, philosophy, and material remains. Our Year 13 Student was awarded a commendation for her submission as the committee was "greatly impressed by the quality of your essay". Congratulations Rhiannon! A fabulous achievement celebrated by the whole school!
