The Townsend-Warner History Prize which started 135 years ago, is one of the oldest institutions in the preparatory school world and has proved to be enduringly popular in encouraging the study of History.
The Prize consists of two papers; Round One has 100 questions demanding one-word or one-sentence answers from world history, but with a strong emphasis on British history; our pupils were faced with some challenging and obscure questions about people and events from the past.
We are looking forward to finding out if any Belmontians have made it through to Round Two. Big congratulations to everyone that took part.
Mrs C Smith
Head of History
