GCSE Poetry Live
On Tuesday 22nd January, some of the Year 11 cohort went on a trip to Birmingham Town Hall to watch GCSE Poetry Live. This is an annual event where famous poets demonstrate their outstanding capabilities as poets to inspire students about poetry and why writing poetry can be empowering and insightful. The Year 11 students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and found the poets performances enthralling. However, one of the most educational parts to the day was the examiner sessions. Two sessions of the day were dedicated to talking through exam guidance and tips in regards to poetry and unseen poetry – two elements that students have to cover in their GCSE exams. Students were impeccably behaved and took a lot of knowledge and inspiration away from the day.
