Ella is Highly Commended in Geography Competition

Upper Sixth pupil, Ella D, has received a Highly Commended award in this year’s School Essay Competition run by the Royal Geographical Society and the Financial Times.

Applicants were asked to write an essay exploring and explaining the environmental costs of current consumer trends, behaviours and purchasing decisions. The competition was open to all A Level geography pupils and the judges were looking for clear essays that were well-evidenced and reached a clear conclusion.

Ella commented: “I am hoping to study Geography at university, so I was looking for ways in which I could enhance my application. This competition seemed perfect and I really enjoyed the process of researching and preparing my essay. I am delighted to have been Highly Commended, which I really didn’t expect, and I look forward to taking my studies further at university.”
