BBC Student Critics AwardWe are delighted that our A Level English Literature students have been selected to participate in the BBC Student Critics' Award with First Story and Cambridge University. This award presents a wonderful opportunity for our girls to learn more about the short story form by discussing five shortlisted stories, and to be part of a wider literary community on a national scale.  

On 14th September, the award judges will announce the 2018 shortlist on ‘Front Row’ on Radio 4. The girls will then be asked to work through the five shortlisted stories, through reading, listening to audio files together and discussing them. Not only will being involved enable the girls to voice their own robust opinions but it will provide them with enriching material for UCAS applications and university interviews.

The winners of this award will then be announced live on 2nd October on ‘Front Row’ on Radio 4, (7.15pm - 7.45pm).
