An 11-16 Academy
Over the past few months, a group of Year 9 and 10 pupils have participated in an evaluative essay competition, addressing the big issues in science and religion. With the aid of 12 short films by Professor Russell Stannard, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the Open University, and various classroom activities, pupils were invited to write a short 800-1200 word essay in two parts. The first was a personal perspective on the subject matters covered in the films, whereas the second provided a critical appraisal of the material. Three first prizes of £300 and ten second prizes of £100 are up for grabs for the pupils who have written the most thoughtful essays, which will be judged by Professor Stannard himself. On behalf of all the students who took part, I would like to thank Mrs Hurren for her time, support and weekly refreshments that she provided throughout the course.
