Students in Seward House celebrated the 275th birthday of famous poet and ‘Swan of Lichfield’ Anna Seward this morning.

All 240 students in Seward House enjoyed a celebratory cake iced in Seward House green. All students then joined in a raucous rendition of Happy Birthday for Anna Seward. Students also made donations to their House’s chosen local charity of Midlands Air Ambulance.

Head of House Mr Havill  said: “It is great that Anna Seward’s birthday falls during House Celebration work. It gave us a great excuse to come together as a House and for all students to enjoy a reward for their hard efforts during the first half term. Seward House keep on topping the House Points League so this morning was well deserved.”
