The 2018 Wilson Challenge, the school’s premier Classics competition, was held at the end of the Lent Term. The pupils wereasked to select a classical myth and to deliver a PowerPoint presentation in which they investigated the ways in whichthe mythhad been interpreted by artists of the modern era. The standard of the competition was very high indeed and Mr Brian Wilson’s role as chief adjudicator was far from easy. The results were as follows:

Junior: 1st prize: Beth Rodgers on Orpheusand Eurydice by Christoph Gluck

2nd prize:Ethan Bareham: Icarus by Henri Matisse

3rd prize:Helena Montgomery: Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

Senior: 1st prize: Pollyanna Harris: Leda Atomica by Salvador Dali

2nd prize = Andrew Whitford: the Dream of Narcissus by Salvador Dali
