OxNet runner up

OxNet runner up

We were also delighted to learn that a Year 12 student, Lauren Wilson, has been awarded a runner up prize in the prestigious OxNet English Easter essay competition run by Oxford University. Lauren had already gone through a demanding selection process to gain a place on the OxNet programme, and her essay was judged 1 of the best 3 from all the students involved from the North West, the North East and London. As a result, her essay will shortly be published on the OxNet website. According to Assistant Principal, Richard Lee, ‘this is a phenomenal achievement by Lauren, as she was competing against the best English students in the country, and her success attests to the maturity of her thinking and writing. We are very proud of her.’ As Lauren said, she ‘really enjoyed the chance to talk with others who are passionate about literature’ through the OxNet project and is ‘thrilled to have the chance to be published.’ Well done, Lauren!
