Cranmer Awards 2019

Cranmer Awards 2019

On Tuesday 22 January 2019, a dynamic group of Sexey’s students accepted the challenge to take part in the annual Cranmer Awards – a competition run by the Prayer Book Society to introduce young people to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

Entrants from across the country read or recite a passage of their choice, 3-5 minutes in duration, from the Book of Common Prayer, with local heats held around the country.

The following students were praised highly by the judge for their readings:

  • In the Junior Competition: Bethany A, Analise I & Chloe H
  • In the Senior Competition: Daniella L

Special congratulations to Domini A who won the Junior Competition and Rose B who won the Senior Competition. Both girls are now preparing to go to Lambeth Palace in London, to represent Sexey’s School and the Diocese of Bath and Wells at the National Final on 21st February!

All of the entrants acquitted themselves well and were tremendous ambassadors for our state boarding and day school. Special thanks to Rachel Robbins and Bruton School for Girls for organising and hosting the event.
