Caldicott pupil runner up in Royal Geographical Society Essay competition

In preparation for their Common Entrance next year, boys in Year 8 wrote essays on the subject of “My Best Wildlife Experience”. The essays were so good that they were entered into a competition run by the Royal Geographical Society.

We are excited to announce that Year 8 pupil, Alexander Pym, was chosen as a runner-up in a competition run by the Royal Geographical Society with an excellent essay about swimming amongst the coral reef and seeing the wonders of the ocean.

As well as being runner-up, Alexander also had the opportunity to visit the Beyond Steppes Travel Festival at the Royal Geographical Society.  Alexander, along with his parents, had a great time at the event and managed to meet and hear Steve Backshall talk about his latest trip to Antarctica.  A wonderful experience for all.
