Congratulations to four of our aspiring young writers, who have been selected for publication after entering their work in a Young Writers’ competition.

Maddison, Sophie, Amelia and Ayla were tasked with writing a 100-word story or a mini saga with the title Trapped. The students attended an after-school club over the course of a term before Lockdown 2 was introduced.

Miss Burroughs and Mrs Henderson worked on drafts with the students until they were happy to submit their final pieces for the competition, entitled Young Writers SOS Sagas: Trapped

Miss Burroughs said: “Whilst in our after-school club, the girls worked together and helped one another as much as they could to improve their writing. We then gave them writing journals so they could continue writing and planning their sagas. 

“To be selected for publication is a wonderful achievement for our students and is a reward for their hard work and creativity.”

All four have received a Principal Award for excellence.
