We are delighted to announce that Freya Leech (8B) has been selected as one of the 85 commended poets in the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award 2020. Freya was selected from over 6,000 entrants and over 15,000 poems this year from across the world, a truly amazing and impressive achievement. We would like to extend our congratulations to Freya; her winning poem will be published on The Poetry Society’s website and featured on their YouTube and Vimeo channels later in the year, and will appear in an online anthology in the spring. With such an enormous number of entries this year, winning really is phenomenal. We hope this will inspire all of our students to keep reading, writing and reciting poetry.
What is lockdown?
A wall called 2m
A world called www.
A wish called ‘When this is over’
A warming called rainbows in the window
A warning called ‘Keep safe’.
