This years National Poetry Day was brilliant, everyone involved had an amazing time. In the morning Year 7's got to enjoy Poetry Rap workshops. In the afternoon they got to put their own skills to the test where they had the opportunity to take part in a Poetry Rap competition. This years winners were 7RJV James and the Giant Veitch.
You can now watch our video for a taster of what the day involved.
Don't forget we have a number of journals up in the LRC, come on up and see for yourself which ones we have. You can also view our Subscriptions booklet online.
Prize Day this year was fantastic, a great day! Why not relive the magic of the day by watching our Prize Day review film.
Today we welcomed Fiona Clayton and Kate Proctor as Prize Day 2019's special guests. A day jam-packed with talent from our gymnasts, the big band, Cheerleaders, drama students, dancers and street band etc. Prize Day is a special date in the school year where the students are celebrated with awards and prizes. A fantastic year once again, and a big well done to all involved.
Each year we produce a film for Prize Day celebrating the past 12 months; you can catch it here:
We have a wide range of journals up in the LRC in various subjects, so why not come and have a look for yourselves. You can also view what we have up in the LRC on our Subscriptions Showcase.
