National Poetry Day

National Poetry Day

National Poetry Day was celebrated across the school on the 6th of October. Staff shared their love of poetry with their classes and read the work of poets such as Coleridge and Walter de la Mare.

Miss Thackway, English department, co-ordinated the day and worked with Ms Cordall, the librarian who liaised with other librarians to share some of our pupils' work on the theme of Messages.

Here are two of the messages that Year 9 pupils would choose to place in a time capsule:

“Time is powerful

It sometimes goes too slow or too quickly

Make sure you use it wisely and carefully

Either you will waste it, or treasure it. The choice is yours!"


“To the finder of this poem

Imagine sleeping in pitch dark

Mainly with a spark

Every night of the week, waiting to be unfurled."
