Poetry Competition Winners
Last term, the English Department ran a poetry writing competition, with students being invited to submit an original poem based on the theme of 'dreams'.
We would like to thank all of the students who took part. The standard of entries was very high and we were impressed by the level of originality and creativity seen across all year groups. The theme of 'dreams' was interpreted in a variety of different ways and it was wonderful to see such a wide range of forms, rhythms and poetic devices being used.
After much deliberation, we are pleased to announce the winning entries below:
1st:There is No Hopeby Radha Godbole
2nd:Dreamsby Elizabeth Duke
3rd:The Nightmare Like Never Beforeby Emma Grimshaw-Durn
1st:The Making of Dreamsby Rosie Bell
2nd:Nighttime Travelsby Fiona Davis
3rd:A Child's Dreamby Zoe Abrahams
1st:Golden vs Demonby Beth Elderton
2nd:Dreamsby Ellen Sayers
3rd:With Light Comes Chaosby Jasmine Hibbert
You can read the winning poems in the attached digital booklet, along with the other entries for each year group. We hope that you enjoy this opportunity to see what our students have been working on and to celebrate their success.
Many thanks to Zoe Cratchley, Caitlin McCormack and Chloe Ross (year 12), who helped shortlist the entries, put together the digital booklet and produced a fabulous video to inspire and support students who were thinking of entering.
