We challenged our students a poetry competition in aid of World Poetry Day and they were tasked write a poem on the theme of ‘environment’ .

The competition was judged by author and poet, Celia Warren who has over 100 books to her name, is a regular contributor to the BBC and is published by many educational publishers, including Schofield & Sims, Pearson and Oxford University Press.

Congratulations to all our winners! Celia said she “really enjoyed reading the entries” and described 1st place winner, Alex Scrine’s poem as “strong and well-crafted”.

The winning entrants won copies of new poetry anthology, A Poem For Every Day of the Year.


1st Prize – Alex Scrine (Animal Care)

3rd Prize – Megan Brunning (Photography)
