Independent School Association (ISA) Essay Competition 2018 Winner

Congratulations go to our extremely creative author, Anna Redfern  (Year 10) who has won the first prize in the National ISA  Favonius Senior Essay Writing Competition. Mrs Strang, Head of English, said, “We are thrilled to have such a talented writer at the school and look forward to reading more of Anna’s highly imaginative, thoughtful narratives.”

The judges commented that Anna’s entry ‘Who am I?’  “was an unusual and effective piece, told from the point of view of a mirror observing the everyday life (and tragedies) of the family whose lives it reflects.”

The extract below is from Anna’s entry:

‘I do not speak but, lucky for her, I do not laugh either. She isn’t what she imagines herself to be. I tell her the truth and she rewards me with her back. Before any further reflections, she’s out the door and off to work.’ Click here to read more of her thought provoking story.
