High School students achieve success in GDST’s Laurie Magnus Poetry Competition

We were delighted with the wide range of submissions in the GDST’s annual competition

At the end of the Spring term, the English Department received a wide range of submissions to the GDST’s annual Laurie Magnus Poetry Competition.

Students produced work in a remarkable range of styles, from flights of fancy to passionate calls for social change, from light verse to meditative, personal introspection.

The winning entries from Northampton High are by Isobelle A (6.2), Harriet W (L5) and Sonya M (L4). Runners-up were Mo L (6.1), Hannah P (U5) and Anushka T (U4).

Congratulations to all students for their hard work and wonderful submissions!
