Before the Easter break, Senior School pupils were invited to participate in a Poetry & Photography Competition run by the English & Art Departments.
A fantastic number of submissions were received with some excellent poems* and photos showing real skill. Pupils were able to enter various categories which included the themes of Differences, Journey and Isolation and could choose to enter just a poem, a photo or a combined entry.
Well done to all who took part and congratulations to the year group winners!
*as the poems were quite long, short snapshots have been taken below.

Born in London
And only recently I realise the difference in wealth,
Difference in privilege and the desire for help,
Being darker than light means you have more pain,
Pain in which you will always have to sustain,

Travelling on Ryanair is a nightmare
When grey gum sticks in sticky strings to your fingers
As you touch the table on the seat in front.
Travelling on Ryanair is a complete and utter nightmare
And I would rather walk.

infinitely requited love
if it weren't for this unforgiving world,
that would devour us at the very thought
of the football and rugby captain falling in love,
had you chosen to be my everything instead of wearing your pride as a disguise,
I'd sacrifice every drop of blood that runs in my veins for you and i to become us
