English Writing Competition

The English Writing Competition allows students to develop their creative writing skills, as well as helping them to structure their thoughts and build an argument in English. The goal is to create a space in which the students can express themselves fluently through written English.

In the first stage of this competition, participants must write an argumentative essay or email. The selected finalists then go on to develop a piece of creative writing, inspired by a site of national heritage such as the Natural History Museum, the venue for 2018's final.
