Year 8 star wins Historical Fiction Competition award

17th November 2021

Earlier this year, a number of QEGS boys entered the Historical Association’s Historical Fiction competition – a national competition that encourages young people to express their creative sides alongside a strong understanding of a historical period, event or theme. There were lots of categories but in the Year 8 section, Oscar (now in 9RV) was shortlisted and ultimately won the competition with his story Through the Gates of Hell – a narrative on the Greek’s experience during the siege of Troy.

The judges commented that Oscar’s entry was “a very clever story set inside the Wooden Horse at Troy, with lots of suspense and the kind of detail that puts the reader into the story and period.”

A huge congratulations to all the boys who entered but particularly to Oscar for his success, a phenomenal achievement.
