Young People’s Poetry Competition


On Saturday 16th September, we proudly attended the Young People’s Poetry Competition Prize Giving. Our winners were Callum S. in Year 8, Sean D. in Year 6, Tristan D in Year 5 and ex-pupil Alex W in Year 7.

Father Kevin Morris, the vicar of St Michael & All Angels presented the prizes for the Chiswick Book Festival Young People’s Poetry Competition. James Priestman, the chair of judges introduced the winners and commented on all of their poems.

Now in its 7th year, the competition attracts entries from many local schools and is supported by and Trotters.

The Falcons boys’ poems were all displayed in the ceremony marquee and it was a delightful occasion to see such talent celebrated. Each of our prize winners received a certificate and a goodie bag from Trotters. In last Friday’s assembly the winners were all presented with their ‘Poetry Award’ badge to wear all year as our poet laureates.
