We are please to announce a new essay competition, open to any students in Years 7 and 8 in the academic year 2018/19.

Candidates are invited to submit, either electronically or as a hard copy, an essay of 1500 words on a topic chosen each year by the Headmaster's of King's College.

The title of this year's is A Cabinet of Curiosities. You are required to select between three and five items that you would choose to put on display in a glass case in a museum.

In your essay you will describe each object and explain what story it tells and it is of particular interest to you.

Explain why you think it is important for other people to see the object and what they will learn from it.

Why might the object be of interest to future generations?

The first prize will be £200.
