The history department is now able to announce the results of the inaugural Brighton-King’s History Essay Prize 2019-20 for Fourth Form pupils. Competition from both schools was fierce and there were some excellent entries on topics ranging from the development of warfare in the Medieval period to the significance of Enzo Ferrari. Nonetheless, after a tough judging process, Ted K of King’s College School was named the winner for his essay on the significance of the Roman philosopher Cicero (below).
Brighton College pupils took the next two top spots, with Elizabeth S placing second for her essay on the importance of Emily Davies, a campaigner for female education and Eloise W achieving third place for her essay on the significance of the break from Rome. Both Elizabeth and Eloise will receive a prize and a distinction for their entries.
Congratulations to both and a big well done to all pupils who entered the competition!
