Poetry Slam Success

The poetry slam which took place in the library today was a real success. It was a very uplifting experience and it went to prove again how exceedingly talented our pupils are. Lucy W walked away with first prize with Lydia FS a close second and Phoebe W third.

The event was expertly arranged and hosted by the 6th form English Society under the incredible tutelage of Miss Devlin. Our thanks go out to Mrs Russell, Mrs Malkin and Mr Barry, all of whom read extracts from texts that had particular resonance for them; Mr Barry going above and beyond by reading an original composition! Special thanks also to Mr England and Mrs Marler for judging the competition and to Mrs Hodgson for supporting the whole process.
