In December, our Year 7 students were involved in a creative writing competition organised by the English Department. Mr. Cockerill reports that ‘The creative writing competition was organised by the English Department in response to reading a selection of short stories from the Iridescent Adolescent anthology, published by the English and Media Centre. The quality of work submitted was of a very high standard. Winning students received a certificate, a writing journal and some chocolate. Some students submitted book cover designs too, for which there was a separate prize. Because of its success and popularity, we’re planning to run another competition again next term on the theme of a ‘journey’.’
Here are some of the competition winners receiving their certificates,
The Readathon has also been completed with students taking the opportunity to read whilst raising £75 for charity.
