Our first ever cohort of students entered the prestigious John Locke Essay Prize during the Summer Term, hosted by Oxford and Princeton Universities, competing against students from across the UK and all over the world.
The students produced a range of impressive responses on topics as diverse as the nature of consent, the state funding of political parties and the existence of the multiverse.
We were thrilled when two of our Upper Sixth, Adam and James, were shortlisted in their subject categories (Politics and Philosophy). This meant that out of the thousands of responses, theirs were marked as being in the top 100 and both were invited to attend a gala dinner in Oxford to recognise their achievement, where the winners were announced.
To our delight, James’ piece on the multiverse was “highly commended”, placing it in the top 25 entries in the world – an outstanding achievement, and one which shows that Churcher’s academic talent can compete with any across the globe!
