Students Have Their Writing Published

Students Have Their Writing Published

Exciting news from the English Department – we have some published writers!

As mentioned previously, in the Autumn Term, we entered a competition launched by the Young Writers Organisation. The challenge was for students to write a story using one of the sentence starters provided. They received over 20,000 entries from students across the country, and we had some impressive entries from our students too.  As well as monetary prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd, selected students would get their work published.

Eight of our students (from a total of 25 entries) have had their work published in the Stranger Sagas Anthology, and a copy of it can be found in the Library for both students and staff to read.

The students are:

Bethany Fothergill – Year 10

Kaedon Adams – Year 8

Anas Mohamed – Year 8

Kittie Keane – Year 8

Sabiha Ahmad – Year 8

Morgan Cooper – Year 8

Ellis Thorne – Year 8

Navraj Mahil – Year 8

A big congratulations to them! Well done.
