OM Reading Prize

Thursday 7th March 2024

The Old Marlburian Reading Prize is a longstanding part of the Shell academic calendar. This year it was won by Marlborough College Malaysia exchange pupil, Audrey T, for her wonderful performance of Stand-To: Good Friday Morning by Siegfried Sassoon (CO 1902-04).

All Shell pupils researched the work of many OM writers with their Form beaks before choosing a piece of their writing to recite from memory. Each Form selected a winner to perform in the final, which was held in the Memorial Hall on Tuesday 5th March.

This year’s competition was adjudicated by Nick Gordon, Head of English and Form, who was impressed by the range of OM writers that were chosen and enjoyed the spirited performances of the pupils.

Well done to all the performers especially those who were Highly Commended: Duncan G, Bertie C and Tallulah B.
