RKA Sociology Essay Competition

Year 12 students were recently invited to enter the Red Kite School Alliance Sociology Essay Competition to produce an essay of no more than 1500 words, applying a sociological perspective to a social issue of their choice, which had received media attention in the past 12 months.  We are delighted to report their success:
