Competitions

In October our competition focused on gothic horror and our winner was sixth former and keen writer Harmony Doswell,  who wrote a darkly, gothic poem – well done.

Following this, we asked our students to enter a 280-character tweet on a topic of their choice, which proved to be very interesting! An example of one of the best is below:

Wider Reading

To encourage wider reading among our older Hillgrove students we are introducing a ‘Genre of the Month’ in which we promote books within a chosen genre: we are currently focusing on dystopian fiction promoting George Orwell’s classic dystopian tale ‘1984’ as well as modern novels such as Scott Westerfields ‘Uglies’ and James Dashner’s ‘The Maze Runner’ series. This will be followed in the New Year with a focus on the horror genre and we have some exciting new novels lined up as well as classic horror tales.
