Poetry Competition
Associated Poetry Competition

We have a poetry competition every year.  

The winning poem is sent out to all the schools participating in the competition.  

Each school is then allocated a line of the winning poem. 

The responsibility of learning that line is the job of the poetry line reader for the team.  

The poetry line reader has to deliver that one line using all the tools of public speaking.  


The winning poet is invited along to the competition (as an extra 'team member'). 

 The winning poem is duplicated and framed three times.  

The winning poet will present a framed copy of their poem as they introduce each 

Judge on the day of the competition.   

The winning poem is also put on the back of the programme for everyone to see. 


Very well deserved congratulations to all our previous winning poets.
