To celebrate National Poetry Day on 4 October, the Library and English Department jointly ran a competition for students to write and submit a poem on the subject of ‘Change’ – this year's theme.
There were some wonderful, thought-provoking entries and the standard was very high, but in the end our judging panel – consisting of Sixth Form English students, and poetry enthusiasts Sarah, Becky and Taisie – decided on:
Winner – ‘cycle of life, cycle of love’ by Sofia, Year 11.
Highly Commended – ‘A Girl, a Bed, a Sky’ by Charlotte, Year 11; ‘Summer to Autumn, it's Time for a Change’ by Maisie-Grace, Year 7 and ‘An English Sari’ by Sophie, Year 10.
Congratulations to all our winners and thank you everyone who entered.
