Historical Fiction Winners

The History Department have held a Historical Fiction writing competition, following the criteria of the Historical Association’s National competition. All of the entries were exceptionally good, historically accurate and an interesting read.  First prize was awarded to Evie Beckett and runners up awards were given to Vilte Poskute, Aime Gopuran and Maltida Niza.  Well done!

Our winning students will now have their entries submitted to the National competition, the winners of which will be announced in November.  There is a prize of £25 cash and a trophy for each category and the school could win a year’s membership to the historical association.  There is also a prize for the best fictional historical character in a convincing historical setting. Three prizes will be on offer here across all year groups.

The stories submitted by our winners all demonstrated historical accuracy and were a riveting read with a good plot!

Good luck in the national competition and well done!

Mr Treadwell and Miss Davies
