The winners of the Battle of Britain writing competition have been chosen from an "overwhelming" number of entries.

The competition was run as part of a special Battle of Britain Day which took place on 9 October 2015 to mark the anniversary and fundraise for the RAF Benevolent Fund - close to £800 (£789.08) was raised from the Red, White and Blue mufti day.

The Social Sciences department launched the writing competition for Key Stage 3 students with a challenge to compose a commemorative piece of writing focusing on the Battle of Britain.

Entries were displayed on The Street on 9 October 2015 and winners were rewarded with certificates and cinema vouchers.

"There was an overwhelming number of entries, particularly from Year 8 who were set the task for their History homework and Year 9 who worked on their creative writing techniques with Miss Burman in English," said curriculum assistant Miss Hill.

Last month a group of students was selected from 60 schools who entered the RAF Benevolent Fund’s competition to win VIP tickets to a special screening at the city's Vue Cinema of Radio 2’s Battle of Britain at 75 concert.

The event, which concluded the day-long commemorations, was broadcast from Biggin Hill on 18 September 2015 

The 10 students, from Years 8 to 12, were chosen in recognition of their fundraising efforts for the College's Battlefields trip to Belgium and France taking place in November and were accompanied by Mr Arnold and Miss Hill.
