Poetry Finalists Published!


Eight girls from our Creative Writing Club have once again been published in print, after their poems were selected to appear in ‘The Poetry Trials’, a competition that stretched to students across the globe!

Their task was to craft a poem about something they cared about or from their point of view using creativity, technique and skill, and they have now been forever immortalised in print in this fantastic anthology.

Congratulations team!

Creative Writers Get Published!

Creative writing comp winners

Six aspiring writers, now in Year 8 and 9, entered the Young Writers Spine Chillers Competition in Spring 2016 as part of Creative Writing Club. Their task was to write a chilling ‘mini-saga’ in 100 words or less.

Joelle Esquejo, Jenny Brooks, Jess Beales, Jess Wallace, Jenny Hurnell and Kate Edwardson are all competition finalists and their stories have been published in the Young Writers Spine Chillers – County Durham & Tyne and Wear Anthology. Well done girls!

There is a copy of the book in the LRC should you want to read these scary stories in print.
