History Inter-House Competition

A huge congratulations to the recent winners of our inter-house competition for history. Each year group was invited to enter a separate competition, aimed at the period they have studied this year, to show off their historical skills and present their own developed argument on a specific historical debate. We were really impressed with all of the entrants and are pleased to announce the winners, who all received a £10 Amazon voucher to recognise their efforts.

In year 7, the winner was James S. James produced a developed and analytical argument to support that the invention of the Gutenberg Press was the most significant event of the medieval period.

In year 8, the winner was Jasmine T. Jasmine submitted a well-researched and supported argument about why it is important for students to learn about the Transatlantic Slave Trade, demonstrating fantastic reflection on a recent unit of study.

In year 9, the winner was Finley N-P. Finley entered an analytical and well-evidenced argument suggesting that the Chernobyl disaster was the most significant event of the twentieth century.

Well done to all students who entered the competition; all entrants were fantastic!
