This year's prize has been awarded to joint winners Sophie Haslett (Form VI) and Celeste Guinness (Form V). Congratulations!
Candidates were asked to discuss in an essay the following:
'The issue of youth, with its innocence, arrogance, valour and tragedy permeates the epic poetry of Virgil and Homer. It provides lessons for the reader in terms of moral and heroic behaviour.'
There were many other fine entries from Forms VI and V. The winning essays will appear here in due course.
