Overall, five entries were chosen as winners from all of the entries.
It was an extremely difficult process to refine the choices down to five overall. The quality of writing was genuinely exceptional across all year groups. The task was related to our current Global Campus focus - quality education.
Therefore, the students had to create something that fulfilled one of four prompts related to education. Although this is an incredibly important topic that the students and teachers share a genuine passion for, it is not necessarily the easiest task to write about in a creative and engaging way. However, our students showed a variety of ways of exploring the topic. They used unusual narrators and perspectives and they created believable and strong characters.
Some students drew on personal experiences, while other used more abstract ideas. This variety of ideas made the writing interesting to read but the competition difficult to judge!
After long deliberations, the five KS3 winners were chosen. They were all presented a certificate during Monday’s assembly.
As well as the depth of talent in KS3, we had some great entries in the older years. These students showed an impressive array of writing styles and narrative voice. An overall winner was chosen from this group to be entered into the overall competition.
The KS3 winners were:
