  • 1st Prize for Year 11 Student Ella at Hampshire Young Poets 2023

    Published 19/10/23


    We are delighted that Year 11 student Ella won 1st prize in her age category for her poem at the recent Hampshire Young Poets competition.

    Miss Knight, English Teacher, said “It was a wonderful morning, and I am so proud of Ella for representing the school.”

    Her poem is on the concept of ‘Home’, and it is below: 

    Hurriedly sewn into lovingly stitched petticoats,

    The last of the family silver came with us

    Across the Channel, across the water

    To safety

    We left our life on distant shores

    To build another somewhere strange

    Surrounded by new customs, language, people

    We forged a new future

    And made our home again.

    The years have passed

    Time has changed us

    But the silver still sits, pride of place, upon the mantelpiece

    Gold Award

    As a result, the school won a £50 gift voucher for P & G Wells to spend on poetry books.

    Ella has also received a Headteachers Gold Award for her achievement. This award represents the highest award you can get in school!

    Congratulations Ella!
