Whitehead Prize

The Whitehead Prize was established in 2015 memory of Anthony Whitehead, a great friend of the branch and of classics.  It is awarded to students (sixth-formers, undergraduate or postgraduate) who have successfully endeavoured to promote classics in the community. If you would like to make a nomination, please contact our secretary, Kat Mawford.

This year’s prize was awarded to Jessica Coatesworth for her great commitment to Manchester Classics for All in her role as project coordinator. During her time leading the project, Jess worked tirelessly to develop links with schools in Greater Manchester and bring Latin to great numbers of students in local schools.
