Beacon Sixth Form student wins regional award in Government and Politics

Congratulations to Year 12 student of Government and Politics, Max Kafula, the winner of a prestigious regional essay writing award.

Max was awarded second place in the East Sussex Inter-College Politics Network essay writing competition 2018, and was recently presented with his certificate by Acting Head of History, Mr Ingham.

Writing on the subject of Global Politics, Max chose to address this question: “Evaluate the extent to which the American Congress is a representative institution.”

Mr Ingham said that he was delighted that Max had shown such a high level of ability in his Government and Politics entry: “The competition was open to all Politics students in East Sussex. Max deserves enormous credit for the depth of knowledge and perceptive ideas. This is an impressive achievement.”

Congratulations are also due to Beacon Sixth Form Government and Politics student, Chris Jury, who has recently been awarded a prestigious work experience placement with the office of Nusrat Ghani, the Member of Parliament for Wealden.
