Poetry Competition Winners!

Eight of our pupils, Finlay B, Max E, Ruaidhri M, Anna M (5CD), Alexander F, Isabella R (5L), Sophie C and Issy S (5T), have had their poems chosen to be read at the Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival’s Young People’s Poetry Evening by David and Ali Troughton on Wednesday 4 July at 6pm in The Shakespeare Centre.

The theme of all the poems this year was ‘Olympics’, and the children’s poems will be attached to the railings of Shakespeare’s Birthplace for all to read that day.

Congratulations to all the winning poets!
