Poetry Together

We were delighted to host the Poetry Together Competition Finals at Sancton Wood. The poetry initiative is sponsored by Dukes and endorsed by The Queen Consort and the writer and former politician turned celebrity, Gyles Brandreth who hosted the event.

Poetry Together is about bringing the young and old together through the joy of poetry. This year, children and elderly folk from across the UK and around the world took part, to submit poems on the theme of Laughter and Tears. We were thrilled to have four finalists from the school: Joshua (Y9), Kherlen (Y8), Benjamin (Y6) and Adam (Y5), with Kherlan and Benjamin both winning their categories. Benjamin was chosen by ITV Producers to appear on This Morning to read his poem live on air. He went with his Mum and they had a great day.

Y5 and Y6 enjoyed creative writing workshops with the Children’s Poet Laureate, Joseph Coelho and award-winning author Lucy Cuthew.
