6th form students triumph in John Locke Essay Competition

Three sixth form students have triumphed in the John Locke Institute Global Essay Competition at Oxford, which this year saw 19,000 candidates enter the seven categories.

The rigorous and selective writing competition in the social sciences and humanities attract a high level of entries and only the very best are shortlisted.

Rugby School’s Nia Sutton was awarded a merit for her essay, ‘What was God doing before He created the Cosmos?’, Rupert Sneath received a commendation for his essay: ‘If China becomes the leading superpower, what would that mean for the people who live there. What would it mean for everyone else?’ and Anne Yang’s essay: ‘Would justice be better served in the United States if more Supreme Court judges were women?’ made the shortlist.
