Writing: Our work with Amina Atiq and The National Literacy Trust - The Power of Voice
During the summer term, we had the privilege to host Amina Atiq @AminaAtiqArtist in our school. Amina is a poet, performance artist and creative campaigner, passionate about nurturing the voices in young people. In collaboration with The National Literacy Trust, Amina started working on a project with some of our Year 7 and Year 8 students called ‘The Power of Voice.’ We are very excited to have received the publication and we can’t wait to share some of their work with you.

Reading: World Book Day 2023
World Book Day 2023 was a wonderful celebration of reading in our school. We joined together to participate in a range of activities. We wore fancy dress, decorated our classroom doors, participated in a sponsored readathon, hunted for literary clues, guessed The Masked Reader and simply enjoyed reading together. Well done to everybody for their enthusiasm and involvement on the day!
