Latymerian wins Oxford University essay prize

Congratulations go to Rachel Keaveney (Y10) who has won a prestigious Oxford University competition! Rachel has been announced winner of the Junior Prize in the St Benet's Hall School Essay Competition for 2016.

The judges were unanimous in awarding Rachel first prize. They considered her essay, entitled; Is it immoral to buy a £100,000 car? to be “rigorous and well-researched, whilst maintaining an interesting and fluent argument.”

Rachel had a choice of three questions to write an essay of up to 1000 words. The other two were; Can computers think? and Why would anyone want to be famous after they’re dead?

The prize of £150 and an invitation to a celebratory meal at St Benet’s Hall, Oxford University is very well deserved!
