Dukes Education Essay Prize

This year's Essay Prize is now closed for 2017.

At the heart of Dukes Education is a mission to empower students to achieve excellence through an exceptional and inspiring education.

To this end, the Dukes Education Essay Prize is a nationwide scheme, with the ambition to develop academic creativity and passion among aspirational students. Inspired by an infamous past entrance test for fellows at All Souls’ College, Oxford, we invite students in Years 11 and 12 to write an essay in response to a one-word prompt, chosen from a selection of seven options.
