Huge congratulations to our incoming Head Prefect Amelia Griffiths for winning First Prize for her Veterinary Medicine entry in the prestigious Cottrell Essay Prize organised by Lucy Cavendish College at the University of Cambridge. The essay is open to prospective students of medicine and veterinary medicine and is considered to be one of the most prestigious competitions in these fields. Amelia managed to set aside time during a busy period in the academic calendar to produce an exceptionally well researched and sharply analytical 1,500-word essay entitled 'Brachycephalic dogs spend their entire lives struggling to breathe. Their popularity is regrettable, and their breeding should be strictly regulated.' Discuss. The prize is worth £100, but the achievement of winning first prize is invaluable – very well done! We are so super proud of you Amelia #cambridgeuniversity #lucycavendishcollege

On Monday our Y10 Latin GCSE cohort had a fascinating trip to the British Museum. We booked to see the exhibition about Nero, a controversial figure in the Roman world, now ripe for reconsideration. The pupils were surprised and impressed by what this so-called "bad" emperor had managed to achieve in 14 short years, from rebuilding the whole of the centre of Rome after a notorious fire, to overseeing the quelling of the Boudicca rebellion in Britain. He was forced to commit suicide at the tender age of 30 as a result of political unrest. We had time for a quick walk through the Roman Galleries. . . #latin #nero #britishmuseum
We were delighted to welcome the youngest members of our Radnor House School Community at our Induction morning for children joining us in Year 5 from September 2021 for the start of their Radnor Journey.
