To celebrate National Poetry Day on Thursday 3rd October, the school library ran a poetry competition with the theme of TRUTH.

Entries came in from students in Years 7-9 on various different subjects. One was the truth about growing up, another was the truth about friends, and another was the truth about how we treat our world.

The winning entries – amidst a high standard – were Leila Thomson (7S2), Maddi Bowyer (8J1), Maiya Ogden (8J1) and Mary Hughes (9D1).

All the entrants have received House points and the winners will be having a tutor time treat of hot chocolate and toast.

Mark Drury, Assistant Headteacher, said: “We view the library as a key part of pushing students to develop research skills, think creatively, and to work independently, so this latest scheme was a great example of this. We were delighted with the entrants and the work produced.”
