Last week was English Week in the Secondary School with lots of creative English activities taking place. Throughout the week students were challenged with daily quizzes on language, literature and lateral thinking. On Thursday the school hosted its first ever Poetry Festival – a celebration of the written and spoken word – with students and staff taking to the stage to share their poems. On Friday we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. To round up the week, the English department provided a 99-question quiz on all things language and literature for students to enjoy during tutor time. There was some stiff competition but Year 10 outshone all others by securing the first, second and third places!
Well done and thank you to everyone who got involved.
