Winter Writing Competition

Posted 28th March 2024

Today was a big day in our literacy calendar. Earlier this year, students from across the academy took part in the Winter Writing Competition. The theme was ‘what makes me happy’ and the competition was funded and supported by the Big Help Project national charity. More than 80 students from across all year groups entered the competition. The judging panel consisted of charity workers, city councillors and business leaders. After much deliberating, the judges decided on the top three entries. Each of the top three entrants would receive cash vouchers ranging from £100 for the top prize to £75 and £50 for the runners up. Today, the CEO of The Big Project, Peter Mitchell visited our school to talk about the importance of writing and communication and well as undertake his prize giving duties. Our students, as always, were a credit to the school as they listened attentively to Peter’s words of wisdom. After much excitement and anticipation, eventually, the winner entrants were announced. The three winners were understandably ecstatic and the whole event was a joy to behold. Peter left by saying that he was “very impressed” with our students, and that he wants to fund another competition for our school with a focus on public speaking. We look forward to taking part!
