CLIO Prizes Awarded

CLIO Prizes Awarded

Mr. Hosking, Head of History, has presented Holly B (Lower Sixth Form) with the Senior CLIO Prize. This is awarded on a half-termly basis to a pupil who is deemed by the History Department to show exceptional promise within the field. Holly was awarded the prize for her exceptional performance in the November exams, her participation in weekly history society seminars, and her entry into the Sheffield University Essay Competition. Her choice of prize, ‘A Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England,’ by Ian Mortimer, reflects her desire to consistently explore outside the boundaries of the A Level syllabus and to stretch and challenge herself intellectually at every opportunity. Holly is a most worthy recipient and terrific asset to the history department.

Max K (Fourth Year) was presented with the Junior CLIO Prize, similarly awarded to a Lower or Middle school pupil. Mr. Wood commented, ‘Max has been an exemplary student of History this term, bringing his curiosity and sophisticated insights to the content in equal measure to his diligence.’ Max’s choice of ‘Fatherland,’ by Robert Harris, reflects his fascination with the period being studied (Germany, 1919-39) and his enthusiasm for getting under the skin of the time period in a way that few other authors can match. I hope he enjoys the book as much as I did and it further fuels his love of history.
