John Locke Institute Global Essay Competition 2022

Congratulations to Upper Sixth pupil, Charlie, on being shortlisted in the prestigious John Locke Global Essay Competition 2022. Charlie was awarded a commendation and will attend an awards ceremony in October 2022.

The John Locke Institute encourages young people to cultivate the characteristics that turn good students into great writers: independent thought, depth of knowledge, clear reasoning, critical analysis and persuasive style. The Essay Competition invites students to explore a wide range of challenging and interesting questions beyond the confines of the school curriculum.

Entering an essay in our competition can build knowledge, and refine skills of argumentation. It also gives students the chance to have their work assessed by experts. All of our essay prizes are judged by senior academics from the University of Oxford. The judges will choose their favourite essay from each subject category and an overall 'best essay' across seven subjects: Philosophy, Politics, Economics, History, Psychology, Theology and Law.

Upper Sixth pupil, Charlie, decided to focus on the topic of Psychology for her essay, and out of a choice of four questions she explored: ‘Are men and women psychologically different? Does it matter?‘
