28 Jan - Poet Laureate Competition

Poet_laureates_2019

This year we had many fantastic entries for the Poet Laureate competition and would like to thank everyone who entered. After whittling it down to a shortlist of nine poets, we heard the students deliver their poems in front of their peers, including our 2018 Poet Laureate Edwin Roberts, to ensure they would be able to cope with the public nature of the role. We are delighted to announce that this year we have decided to have two Poet Laureates and have offered the post to Victoria Akinleye in Year 12 and Ben Davies in Year 11. These two students are both extremely bright and talented with very different styles and ideas to bring to the role, so I am sure they will prove fantastic ambassadors for the school. Please see their entries by following this link, and possibly be inspired to write some of your own.
