Michael Freeman has been awarded the Sam Hood Prize
Congratulations go to Year 13 pupil, Michael Freeman, who has just been awarded the Sam Hood Prize for his translation of a passage from Sophocles' Antigone. This prize is awarded annually by the classical magazine Omnibus, and the announcement comes a few weeks after Michael received an offer to read Classics at Trinity College, Oxford (along with two other pupils in his class - Teddy Wright at St Hilda's and Freddy Foulston at Queen's).
Earlier in the year Michael won a Charterhouse Essay Prize for his Extended Essay on ‘Virgil's depiction of landscape in the Eclogues’. The translation will be published in Omnibus later in the year.
Once again, congratulations to Michael on this fantastic achievement.
