The challenge: to write for one hour on an unseen title from a choice of questions covering all aspects of the Shrewsbury curriculum.
For a flavour of the scope and range of the questions, please have a look at the paper: Junior School Essay Prize 2019
The scripts have now been sent, without name or House annotation, for adjudication by Dr David Gee. The prizewinner will be announced shortly after Exeat and will receive their prize on Speech Day.
Well done to everyone who took part! All the pupils should be commended for engaging in the spirit of academic curiosity and extension of the courses they have studied.
