Students' work published in poetry book

Members of our Creative Writing Club rewarded in competition with 10,000 entries  

Several of our students in the newly-created Creative Writing Club have had poetry work published after entering a national competition.

Through Their Eyes, which was the 29th annual competition run by Peterborough firm Young Writers, attracted 10,000 entries.

The poetry encouraged imagination and creativity by asking entrants to write from someone or something else's perspective.

Entries by SGS students selected by the judges to be included in the book were:

  • Ben Booth - Prison Break
  • Thien Clare - The First Human To Meet A Dinosaur
  • Luke Doocey - Watching The Wetlands
  • Jack Harrison - The Pressure Of Kim
  • Gregory Pool - The Beast
  • Ryan Ream - What Am I?
  • Isaac Roes - Fruit Have Rights Too
  • Caspian Szczygiel - Emergency!
  • Alexander Taylor - The Crocodile

English tutor Miss Barratt said: "The Creative Writing Club was formed at the beginning of this school year and has been growing in popularity ever since.

"I am so pleased that we already have students achieving so much after this small period of time. We already have more students being published after another national competition and I expect that our successes will only continue."

Any students wishing to join the friendly and welcoming group should go to Blake classroom on a Tuesday lunchtime.

With a copy of their published work are (clockwise, from front left) Caspian Szczygiel, Ryan Ream, Luke Doocey, Gregory Pool, Jack Harrison, Alexander Taylor, Isaac Roes, and Thien Clare.
