In 2019 Dr Philip Knox, Cambridge University lecturer in Medieval English literature, judged the WCSQM essay competition, and had the difficult task of choosing the winning three essays from almost 100 thought provoking and insightful essays answering Dr Knox’s question, ‘Does breaking the rules change the world?’

Cambridge University hosted the 2019 Awards Ceremony at their world famous Lady Mitchell Hall, where over 500 World Class School leaders and students gathered to receive awards for their World Class achievements over the year. Dr Knox hosted a brilliant essay writing workshop following on from the competition, and Dr Glen Rangwala addressed staff and students directly on the Cambridge University admissions process.
Thank you for hosting the WCSQM ceremony in Cambridge. It was great to bring so many teachers and students here, and to have the opportunity to talk to them. Together with our school liaison officers we look forward to developing future relations with WCS to support your work in line with our widening participation strategy.’ Dr Glen Rangwala, Director of Admissions, Cambridge University
