Wigoder Essay Prize

Over the summer students are encouraged to enter the Wigoder Essay Competition. This involves an exploration of a chosen topic, with extensive research, resulting in an essay written to a high academic standard but to still be accessible to a lay audience. The winner receives a book token and the book(s) are then presented to the winning student with a personalised Harris Westminster Sixth Form bookplate.
