Year 12 Essay Competitions
For over a decade, Corpus Christi has run subject-based essay competitions which aim to give students the chance to research, think and write about topics that are incorporated into challenging questions by Cambridge academics. As a result of this we hope to encourage academically able students from all backgrounds to consider applying to Cambridge.
The 2016/2017 competition is now closed, but watch this space for the announcement of our next competition, which will likely be set in December 2017.
